Give EU victims of crime access to stronger rights and support services

The European Union is currently negotiating a new EU Directive, giving stronger rights to victims of crime across all Member States. The Directive includes right to information, protection and right to access victim support services. Current negotiations threaten to weaken the Directive, which would prevent fundamental improvements and leave victims without access to appropriate rights and services. We call on all EU institutions and Member States to unite in our efforts to support the new Directive to provide stronger rights and protection for victims of crime in Europe.

Pourquoi cette pétition est importante

L’Union Européenne est en train de négocier une nouvelle Directive qui devrait donner des droits plus importants aux victimes de crimes dans tous les pays membres de l’Union.   La Directive devrait confirmer le droit à l’information, la protection et l’accès aux services destinés aux victimes.   Mais il y a un grand risque que les négociations en cours ne viennent affaiblir la Directive, empêchant les améliorations fondamentales pour les victimes ce qui les laisseraient sans accès aux droits et services adéquats.

Nous demandons à toutes les institutions de l’Union Européenne et à tous ses pays membres d’unir leurs efforts pour donner leur soutien à la nouvelle Directive afin d’apporter une protection et des droits plus forts à toutes les victimes dans l’Union Européenne.

 Signez cette pétition et demandez a votre famille et vos amis de signer pour obtenir de meilleurs droits pour les victimes de crimes dans toute l’Union Européenne.

PORQUE É IMPORTANTE

 

A União Europeia negoceia neste momento uma nova Directiva que garantirá mais direitos às vítimas de crime em todos os Estados-membros. Esta Directiva inclui o direito à informação, direito à protecção e acesso a serviços de apoio à vítima. As negociações que presentemente decorrem ameaçam reduzir a força da Directiva proposta, bloqueando melhorias fundamentais ao estado actual dos direitos das vítimas, diminuendo substancialmente a extensão dos seus direitos e impedindo-as de aceder a serviços que garantam de forma adequada o respeito pelos mesmos. Apelamos a que todas as instituições da UE e todos os Estados-Membros unam esforços para que a nova Directiva seja efectivamente um forte pilar dos direitos das vítimas de crime na Europa.

Letter to
Victim Support Europe European Parliament
I just signed the following petition addressed to: European Parliament.

----------------
Prevent dilution of EU Directive on Rights of Victims of Crime

The draft Directive proposes positive steps in improving rights for victims and witnesses of crime across all Member States. Any weakening of the draft Directive, such as 'promoting' services for victims rather than 'providing' services, would effectively neuter fundamental improvements.
I urge all those with the power to influence the creation of a genuinely meaningful Directive to act in the best interests of the citizens of Europe by supporting the implementation of a Directive which does not dilute the draft proposals.
