Legal Aid

Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on provisional legal aid for suspects or accused persons deprived of liberty and legal aid in European arrest warrant proceedings

The proposal aims to establish common minimum rules on the right to provisional legal aid for suspects and accused persons in criminal proceedings and for provisional legal aid and legal aid for "requested persons" in European arrest warrant proceedings, thereby rendering effective the rights provided under Directive 2013/48/EU and in particular having regard to Article 3 (3) thereof.
