to the Commission
Rule 130
Traian Ungureanu (PPE)

 Subject:  Pre-trial detention
 Answer in writing 

In March 2014, Parliament adopted a resolution on the mid-term review of the Stockholm Programme.

This resolution stated that Parliament ‘recognises the need for an assessment of the effectiveness of non-legislative work on existing framework decisions, for widespread recognition of the problems with pre-trial detention law and practice across Europe identified as part of the Commission’s consultation, and for a commitment to revisiting the case for establishing minimum and enforceable standards in relation to pre-trial detention through legislative action; calls on the Commission to revisit the case for establishing such standards in relation to pre-trial detention, administrative detention and detention of minors through legislative action.’

What measures does the Commission intend to take to address the issue of pre-trial detention?
