The Report will be presented by the author, Gary Cartwright, the Editor of the Brussels based news portal EU Today.

The Report takes an objective and independent look at progress with reform of the justice system since Romania joined the EU. The publication is timely as it comes hard on the heels of the unfortunate death in custody of a young handicapped man held in remand in Romania, pending trial for suspected petty theft, who was extradited from the UK last year to face charges.

The meeting will be of interest to journalists and public affairs practitioners interested in human rights, prison conditions, the reform of the legal system in Romania, and the need for the exercise of diligence in handling requests for extradition to third countries for trial having regard to due legal process. Following the presentation, there will be a short debate on the situation.
