This comparative report is the second based on empirical research carried out in nine European Union (EU) member states. It examines the rights of suspects and accused persons – the right to interpretation and translation, the right to information, and the right of access to a lawyer – as they are applied and experienced in practice at the investigative stage of the criminal process. The research was carried out by partner organisations in the nine countries, co-ordinated by the Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL).
