Submission on the transposition in Bulgaria of EU Directives on the right to interpretation and translation and on the right to information in criminal proceedings

March 22, 2016 - LEAP, legal experts advisory panel

FT Logo LEAPThe Bulgarian members of the Legal Experts Advisory Panel (‘LEAP’), led by Roumen Petrov and Asya Mandzhukova, have made this submission to highlight the flaws and shortcomings in Bulgaria’s transposition of EU Directive 2010/64/EU on the right to interpretation and translation (‘the Interpretation and Translation Directive’), and EU Directive 2012/13/EU on the right to information in criminal proceedings (‘the Right to Information Directive’), and to urge the Bulgarian Ministry of Justice to take action to resolve these concerns.
LEAP is working extensively to ensure that the Procedural Rights Directives are implemented robustly in all EU member states. Through a series of meetings across the EU, members of the LEAP network, including experts from Bulgaria, have met to explore the need for the additional protections to be incorporated into national legislation and the challenges this may present.
You can download the submission here.
