Chapter Summary

Article 1 sets out the purpose of the Directive: to define the conditions for issuing a limited residence permit, linked to the length of the judicial proceedings, to persons who cooperate in the fight against trafficking or the facilitation of illegal immigration. The key changes to the text as proposed by the Commission made the application of the Directive to smuggling cases optional and weaken the extent and precision of the obligations imposed upon Member States as regards victims. The framing of a common immigration policy, including the definition of the conditions of entry and residence for foreigners and measures to combat illegal immigration, is a constituent element of the European Union's objective of creating an area of freedom, security and justice.
