Current Issues of EU Criminal Law

The book presents a picture of selected current problems of EU criminal law drawn from various perspectives. The issues discussed include: judicial dialogue between national courts, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR); the adequate protection of the rights of participants in criminal proceedings in the EU Member States; relations of the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) with States not participating in the enhanced cooperation; mutual trust in the context of obtaining electronic evidence; CJEU jurisprudence relevant for cooperation in criminal matters; the deprivation of illicit assets in the context of the rights of victims and confiscation in rem; the harmonisation of substantive criminal law relating to the definition of the crime of rape and pharmaceutical crime; insufficient use of alternatives to imprisonment. The Authors indicate the existing issues that need to be solved at the EU and national level and outline the future directions of the development of EU criminal law.

The research issues discussed in the publication are significant from a legal point of view and very current. In their studies, the Authors raise issues that are actively discussed in the doctrine of criminal and European law, especially foreign doctrine, resulting equally from new EU secondary legislation, in addition to the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union. In particular, it should be emphasised that the Authors also address the issues related to the mutual relations between the achievements of the Council of Europe and the acquis of the European Union.
