The European Protection Order
The European Protection Order was introduced by EC Directive 2011/99/EU to allow judicial protection orders issued in criminal proceedings in one Member State to be applied in another Member State.
The directive introduces measures aimed at creating a specific common area of security and justice without internal borders, strengthening the protection measures already obtained by victims of crime. The institution of the European Protection Order, in fact, is based on judicial cooperation in criminal matters as well as on the mutual recognition of judgments and judicial decisions, as sanctioned by the Treaty on the functioning of the European Union.
