An assizes trial is a trial whose course is not known in advance. In order to make it easier to follow the trial, a long-term timetable marking the expected dates of important stages of the trial has been published. A short-term timetable detailing the coming week's programme will also be published once the trial starts.
All victims are entitled to quality representation during the trial. Given the complexity of this case, a defence team has been set up in order to provide each victim with affordable and quality representation, if they so choose.
The trial for the 22 March terrorist attacks is a complex procedure with many steps that aren't always easy to follow. This website provides all interested civil parties with comprehensive and understandable information, without the need for prior legal knowledge.
In addition to the latest news, from the beginning of the trial V-Europe will provide a weekly newsletter containing a clear and understandable summary of the week's proceedings. This newsletter is available to all victims of the 22 March terrorist attacks, so feel free to register.
As the course of the trial is uncertain, V-Europe has put together a regularly updated timetable detailing all known long-term deadlines for the trial, as well as a detailed schedule of the hearings planned in the short term.
Victim representation during the trial
The trial for the 22 March terrorist attacks is unique in many ways. One of its unique characteristics is that it will be a large-scale trial that is set to last an estimated nine months. Ensuring proper representation for such a long time is a difficult task for any one lawyer alone, which is why V-Europe has set up a defence team to defend the interests of the victims in an efficient and cost-effective way.
