Legal Experts Advisory Panel 2019
The meeting was attended by over 80 experts in the field of criminal law. This annual conference aims to include sharing experiences and discussing challenges in the area of cross-border cooperation in Europe in criminal matters.
The last twelve months has arguably seen a crisis of mutual trust in Europe, with question marks remaining over extradition requests to Poland and what can be done to ensure that defence rights and the rule of law are being respected. The issues around mutual trust was discussed by Gwen Jansen from Gwen Jansen Advocatuur, Andras Kadar from Hungarian Helsinki Committee, and Maria Radziejowska from Pietrzak Sidor & Wspólnicy, facilitated by Fair Trials’ Senior Lawyer Laure Baudrihaye-Gérard.
