Position Statement on Procedural Rights and Safeguards in
Criminal Proceedings

This position paper, issued jointly by the International Commission of Jurists together with its Swedish and UK sections, points to the necessity for EU measures to protect procedural rights in EU criminal justice co-operation. The organisations call on the Swedish Presidency to make explicit that the adoption of these rights will be a prioritised issue during the Presidency and as a result will be included in the Stockholm Programme on justice and home affairs.
