Romania: Training the judges in the field of securing the rights of the EU citizens within the criminal proceedings
This project was carried out in cooperation with the Romanian Ministry of Justice and the Croatian Judicial Academy. It had a budget of EUR 297,000, in which the IRZ was involved with EUR 10,000. The project began in February 2017 with a kick-off meeting and was completed in December 2017.
The aim of the project was to improve cooperation between EU Member States on the implementation of the EU Directive 2010/64 on the right to interpretation and translation in criminal proceedings and on the application of Directive 2012/13 on the right to information in criminal proceedings.
The activities of this project comprised a kick-off meeting, an analysis of training needs, a working meeting of experts as well as six seminars held in Romania, Croatia and Germany. A handbook was also prepared based on the conclusions drawn from the discussions with the participants during the seminars. The project was concluded with a two-day conference in Constanta, Romania.
