Dostęp do adwokata w postępowaniu karnym. O standardach i kontekście europejskim

Tomasz Koncewicz , Anna Podolska


The fair trial, and a specially the right to defence, is the overriding element ensuring that the individual is the subject and not the object of the proceedings. Therefore it is important that European Union decided to implement minimum procedural standards. Directive 2013/48/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 October 2013 on the right of access to a lawyer in criminal proceedings and in European arrest warrant proceedings, and on the right to have a third party informed upon deprivation of liberty and to communicate with third persons and with consular authorities while deprived of liberty is an instrument that provides the legal assistance in a time and in a way that will assure real defence. Regulation concerns all national proceedings in criminal matters and refers to standards, which were deepened by European Court of Human Rights. Despite the end of the deadline for transposition, in the Polish legal system no measures have been adopted. From various sources there are signals of the urgency to amend the Criminal Procedure Code. Despite the absence of legislators activity, remains the possibility to invoke the direct effect of the directive or employing instruments, which mobilize the Member States to ensure compliance with EU law. It is necessary to change the law, but also the practice, and above all, to realise that the law is not just a text but also a context.
