Fair Trials Legal Experts Advisory Panel (LEAP), the European network of criminal defence lawyers, academics, and NGO activists coming from 26 countries of the EU, met in Sofia, Bulgaria, on 8&9 March 2018 to discuss a host of critical challenges to fundamental rights in criminal justice systems. Critical issues discussed at the conference included threats to the rights to access a lawyer and to a fair trial, and the way in which criminal justice is increasingly being viewed through the lens of public security at the expense of human rights.
Alexandros Tsagkalidis participated in the Conference.
