EU Member States have largely implemented, and started applying, three instruments on transferring prison sentences, probation measures and alternative sanctions, as well as pre-trial supervision measures, to other Member States. The European Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA)  published a report that provides an overview of their first experiences with these measures, highlighting both best practices and shortcomings.

The report also scrutinises the use of detention in the EU, as well as available alternatives, including with respect to individuals in situations of vulnerability. Taking into consideration the rights of suspects, accused and sentenced persons and the rights of crime victims, as well as the interests of society as a whole, the report offers a timely and comprehensive assessment of the instruments’ potential from a fundamental rights perspective.
