Parliamentary question - P-003392/2015(ASW)Parliamentary question

Answer given by Vice-President Mogherini on behalf of the Commission

Judicial proceedings concerning the legality of political parties may affect important fundamental rights and freedoms as freedom of association, freedom of opinion, and right to political participation.

The EU is actively working to support reforms that will enhance the independence of the judiciary, the impartiality of criminal prosecution, and the right to a fair trial.

The EU and Ukraine discuss all aspects related to respect for fundamental freedoms at various levels, including in the framework of the EU-Ukraine Justice and Home Affairs Subcommittee.
