Draft Legislative Amendments on Victims of Crime

The amendments to the criminal procedural and victims protection legislation seek to compensate for the incomplete transposition of the 2012 Victims' Rights Directive by introducing measures such as victims being accompanied by a person of their choice and further regulation of interviews of persons with special protection needs.

The present Opinion results from the discussion with the participants in the national workshop New legislative initiatives and good practices in working with victims of crime, held on 23 October 2020 at the Center for the Study of Democracy. This workshop preceded the submission of the changes to the National Assembly, but the participants hope that the opinion will help the discussion on the draft in order to improve the situation of the victims in the criminal procedure and their support.
