New book on EU Procedural Rights Directives


“Rights of suspects and accused persons in the European Union” is the title of a book by Ilias Anagnostopoulos, which was published in October 2017 by P.N. Sakkoulas [in Greek].

The book deals with the EU-Directives 2010/64 on the right to interpretation and tarnslation and 2012/13 on the right to information in criminal proceedings.

It includes a detailed analysis of the Directives and their interplay with the case-law of the ECtHR, the CJEU and national courts in various jurisdictions. It also discusses the influence of both Directives on the Greek Code of Criminal Procedure and domestic case-law.
