Ensuring access to case materials in Hungary

The Agency opened a workshop in Budapest on access to case materials by outlining the EU standards and presenting FRA findings regarding the implementation of the EU Directive on the right to information in criminal proceedings.

It drew on its work from its recent report on 'Rights of suspected and accused persons across the EU: translation, interpretation and information'. The event on 8 June focused on laws and practices related to access to case files in criminal cases in selected EU Member States. It was organised by Hungarian Helsinki Committee and co-funded by the European Commission.
