Právo na obhajobu v řízení vedeném Úřadem evropského veřejného žalobce

[The Rights of the Defence in Proceedings Conducted by the European Public Prosecutor’s Office]

Tomáš Gřivna

announced: 14. 11. 2019


The contribution reflects the EU Regulation 2017/1939 of 12th of October 2017, which executes the reinforced cooperation in order to establish the European Public Prosecutor’s Office, with focus on the issue whether the establishment of the Office can have negative impact on the defence of the accused. Question arises, whether a certain disbalance may be created, with a specialized authoritative body of the Union to represent prosecution, and no body deemed to represent the accused is formed as a counterweight. In specific areas, some provisions of the regulation, that seem problematic from defence’s viewpoint, are pointed out.
