by Stefano MANACORDA in Mireille DELMAS-MARTY and John VERVAELE (Eds.), "The implementation of the Corpus juris in the Member States: Volume 4" (English)

Admissibility and evaluation of evidence. National reports of the Member States (France)

The establishment of an area of freedom, security and justice is one of the key objectives of the Treaty of Amsterdam. Measures to harmonize criminal law as well as measures in the field of police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters are an integral part of the strategy by which to attain this objective. On the basis of the conclusions of the European Council meeting at Tampere (1999), it is obvious that measures are needed so as to guarantee the real mutual recognition of judicial decisions in criminal matters, including the pretrial decisions, and to guarantee the free circulation of criminal evidence. The original Corpus Juris study (1997) had elaborated a number of guiding principles in relation to the protection of the financial interests of theEuropean Union within the framework of the European Judicial Space, including the European Public Prosecutor. This follow-up to the Corpus Juris study aims to analyse the feasibility of the Corpus Juris in relation to the legislation of the Member States and also to analyse the horizontal and vertical cooperation in the Member States.
