|Mrs Reding addresses ENCJ in Leuven|
Mrs Reding, vice- president of the European Commission and in charge of Justice affairs, addressed the ENCJ that gathered in Leuven on 11 October. She reiterrated the importance of knowledge and trust between judiciaries in the other European legal systems. Mutual trust must be earned and cannot be forced. Minimum procedural safeguards for suspets, and victims rights will build fairer and better justice systems in Europe. She called upon the ENCJ Members to join her in giving these policy areas the attention they need.
Mrs. Nadia de Vroede, President of the High Council for Justice of Belgium, and Mrs. Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the European Commission
