Fair trials for children: MEPs amend rules to establish strong EU-wide standards

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 13 febbraio 2015

giustiziaDraft EU rules to ensure that children suspected or accused of a crime are assisted by a lawyer at all stages of criminal proceedings in any EU country were approved by the Civil Liberties Committee on Thursday. MEPs also made sure that children are individually assessed by qualified staff, can be heard and state their views in a trial and are kept separate from adult inmates, even, in some cases, after they are 18 years old.An estimated one million children come into formal contact with the police and judiciary in the EU each year (i.e. 12% of the total EU population facing criminal justice). However, their legal protection varies from country to country. For example, not all EU countries provide in their national law the safeguard that children may not waive their right of access to a lawyer. Some EU countries do not at all provide for mandatory defence, others provide for it at court but not at police stations, and others leave it to the competent judge to decide. Due to these disparities, in practice many children do not have access to a lawyer in the EU.“The key aim of this directive is to protect the rights of minors whilst respecting the nature and function of legal proceedings in all member states. It lays down a ‘catalogue of rights’ for young people facing legal proceedings anywhere in the EU. This is a big step forward towards building a framework for fair trials for children”, said the rapporteur, Caterina Chinnici (S&D, IT), in a committee debate. The draft directive would make the assistance of a lawyer mandatory for children at all stages of criminal proceedings in any EU country. MEPs inserted provisions throughout the text to ensure that the child’s best interests are always taken into account.MEPs strengthened the safeguards envisaged for children in the Commission proposal, such as the right to be promptly informed in a simple language about the charges against them, the conduct of the proceedings and their rights. They also added a specific provision on their right to effective remedies and the following requirements, among others:
once arrested, the child has the right to meet with the holder of the parental responsibility or another appropriate adult promptly and in any event prior to questioning;children should be entitled to participate fully in the trial, including being given the opportunity to be heard and to express their views;children must be detained separately from adults and “may, when they reach the age of 18 years, continue to be detained separately from adults unless it is considered to be in their best interests or in the best interests of other detained children not to do so”;these rights would apply “irrespective of the child’s or his or her parent’s or legal guardian’s race, colour, sex, sexual orientation, language, religion, political or other opinion, nationality, ethnic or social origin, property, disability, birth or other status”.
