Keywords:Directive 2012/29/EU, victimization, victims’ rights, protection of victims, legal trends
AbstractIn the pandemic context, the number of cases of violence, especially of domestic violence has increased. After the Directive 2012/29/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012 establishing minimum standards of rights, support and protection of victims of crime, the Romanian legislation on the matter has changed. So, Law no. 97/2018 regarding some measures to protect the victims of crime, Emergency Ordinance no.24/2019 for the amendment and completion of Law no. 211/2004 and others normative acts have been adopted to complete the legal framework. The author is trying to answer the question of whether these measures are sufficient to ensure a real protection for victims, even during periods of health crises?
