Abstract

This book provides an insight into the investigative stage of the criminal process and, in particular, the legal protection of persons suspected of crime, in a number of EU countries: Belgium, England and Wales, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands and Poland. For each country, academic and practicing lawyers critically examine the pre-trial stage of the criminal process and its relationship to the trial stage. this book hopes to provide a nuanced understanding of how the investigative stage of the criminal process operates in a variety of EU jurisdictions, and ultimately to contribute to the development of meaningful policies and processes that will help to ensure the realisation of fair trial rights across the EU.

Keywords: criminal defence, investigative stage, criminal process in Europe
