EU standards in Witness Protection and Collaboration with Justice

Edited by: Gert Vermeulen

This book presents the results of a study conducted for the European Commission, aimed at preparing legislative European initiative in the areas of both procedural and non-procedural witness protection and collaboration with justice. Already the March 2000 Strategy for the beginning of the new millennium, on the prevention and control of organised crime, had called for such initiative. The book 'EU standards on witness protection and collaboration with justice' contains well-balanced proposals for three new framework decisions regarding respectively anonymous witnesses, collaborators with justice and protected witnesses. This book is essential reading for policy makers, judicia (and law enforcement authorities throughout the European Union or from a broader international context. lt wilt be appealing also to researchers and anyone involved or taking an interest in witness or victim protection and/or combating (cross-border) crime at European or international level.
