Pre- and post-trial measures
The EU helps rehabilitate prisoners by allowing them to serve their sentence in their home country. To do this, it has set up a system to transfer prisoners back to the EU country they come from, the one they normally live in or with which they have close ties.
Mutual recognition of protection measures
The judicial protection offered to a victim of violence and harassment can be enforced in other EU countries.
Mutual recognition of financial penalties
The principle of mutual recognition covers also the execution of financial penalties in cross-border cases by facilitating the enforcement of such penalties in a Member State other than the State in which the penalties are imposed.
