"In this paper, the CCBE sets out its position regarding the proposal for an Instrumentalisation Regulation published by the European Commission in December 2021. In the first part, the CCBE expresses its general concerns about derogations that this proposal would allow and is critical about such an approach. In the second part, the CCBE formulates suggestions for improvements of specific provisions with regard to the issue of access to justice and access to a lawyer which are matters within the particular field of activity of the CCBE. In this regard the CCBE finds the lack of any provisions in the proposal regarding legal assistance for people subject to the special procedures to be a striking omission."
