The Practice of Pre-Trial Detention: Monitoring Alternatives and Judicial Decision-Making

As an implementing partner organization of Fair Trials International the HHC is launching its new project to provide a unique evidence-base about the practice of pre-trial detention.

The HHC is launching its new project as an implementing partner organization of the Fair Trials International in the project titled “The Practice of Pre-Trial Detention: Monitoring Alternatives and Judicial Decision-Making”, with generous funding from the European Commission, which will provide a unique evidence-base about how pre-trial detention  is being used in practice across the European Union.

In the framework of the project the HHC – similarly to the other 9 partner organizations – will gather data on the domestic pre-trial decision-making process and the use of alternatives through in-depth surveys of defence practitioners, monitoring detention hearings, reviewing case files, and conducting interviews with prosecutors and judges. In 2015, the HHC will produce a country-specific report on the use of pre-trial detention, comparing Hungarian practice with domestic law and international standards.

 

The project is funded by the European Union.
