However, the Court offustice of the European Union also started to build its particular case law related to trial within a reasonable time. In this paper, the authors will present the developments related to the interpretation of the standard oftrial within a reasonable time as apart ofthe EUacquis. Furthermore, the authors will explore the binding nature of the Charter of Fundamental Rights on the EU candidate countries.
