If victims’ rights cannot be enforced, victim rights are “paper ti‐ gers,” nothing but slogans without power. Therefore, it is important to introduce legal provisions that make victim rights enforceable. This re‐ search focused on one particular right, on ‘victim’s right to informa‐ tion.’ We concentrate on police response to domestic violence in Korea. We draw conclusions from the European Directive 2012. Our conclu‐ sion is: Victims have the right to be informed. To have an enforceable right of the victim to be informed, three prerequisites must be ful‐ filled:1. Discretion control of providing information; 2. Institutionaliza‐ tion of speedy notification; 3. Equipment of solid remedies. The au‐ thors recommend observing the development in Europe that will have worldwide repercussions
