Making citizens’ lives easier
Protecting victims of crime
Julie was a victim of fraud in Malta. Her rights were not fully explained to her and as a result she never received any translation or interpretation during proceedings – she did not even know the outcome of the trial.
Which action(s) did the 2010 EU Citizenship Report foresee?
- To improve the protection of victims of crime by proposing a package of measures, including a legislative instrument.
What is the progress?
A proposal was put forward on 18 May 2011. It is now being debated in the European Parliament and by the Member States in the Council in view of its adoption.
