Answer given by Ms Jourová on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-014774/2015

Directive 2012/29/EU sets out specific protection measures for child victims to avoid harm that may result from inappropriate treatment by justice professionals during the proceedings. Such measures include that interviews are carried out by professionals trained for that purpose. The directive insists on training which enable professionals to identify victims and their needs and deal with them in a respectful, sensitive and non-discriminatory manner. The directive applies from 16 November 2015 and the Commission monitors closely its full and complete implementation and will launch infringement procedures when necessary.

The Commission also prioritised the appropriate treatment of children in investigation and judicial proceedings in the EU Agenda for the rights of the child(1), promotes the Council of Europe’s 2010 Guidelines on child‐friendly justice(2) and published the final results of a study on children's involvement in judicial proceedings in EU28(3). Moreover, the Fundamental Rights Agency carried out primary research and in May 2015 recommended that Member States develop guidelines for interviewing children and gave example of good practices(4). Furthermore, the 2015 European Forum on the rights of the child looked in particular at investigation, treatment, follow-up and judicial involvement(5).

The Commission is also co-financing transnational projects for capacity-building in child-friendly justice and integrated child protection systems under the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme to expand integrated and interagency approaches to child victims (e.g. children's houses)(6) and will continue to prioritise system improvements.
