The right to justice - in Easy to read

The European Union has laws
that protect people who have been treated badly or unfairly.
These people can go to the court and report the bad things
that happened to them.

This way, the court can act to protect them.
In all this process, people with disabilities and all people
should have the right to:

  • understand all steps and make their point clear,
  • be informed about their rights,
  • get the support they need for free,
  • be safe from the people who treated them badly
    and from any other risk. 

You can find more information
on the website of the European Union here:

People who are taken to the court because they did something wrong, also
have certain rights.
For example, they have the right to:

  • be informed about their rights, 
  • have a person to help them understand, if they do not speak the language,
  • have a lawyer to help them make their point clear at the court.
