Letter to Reding regarding pre-trial detention

26/06/2012 – We are writing to you to express our concern about the lack of concrete action towards reform of Europe’s pre-trial detention regime since the November 2011 consultation deadline to the European Commission’s Green Paper on Detention. We urge the European Commission to take action, publish its analysis of the consultation’s findings and announce the next steps, which should include a timeframe for tabling a legislative proposal setting common minimum standards for the use of pretrial detention.
