Criminal Cases

Criminal cases are legal processes aimed at prosecuting people who have committed offences and ensuring justice. These proceedings are opened to punish those found guilty and are carried out in accordance with the law.

Criminal proceedings usually take place in courts with jurisdiction over the place where the offence was committed. Depending on the seriousness of the offence, the case may be heard in local courts or in higher judicial bodies, for example district courts or supreme courts.

Criminal proceedings can be brought in relation to many different types of offences. For example, murder cases, criminal organisation cases, drug offences, etc.

Fair Trial and Rights

Criminal proceedings must be conducted in a process in which the accused enjoys the presumption of innocence, has the right to a fair trial and the evidence is collected and presented in accordance with the law. Offenders are defended by lawyers and violations of their rights are prevented.

The penalties that can be imposed in criminal cases vary depending on the type and seriousness of the offence.

Criminal proceedings play an important role in ensuring that offenders can be held accountable before justice and in ensuring the security of society. Ensuring a fair and impartial trial process in these cases is critical to the realisation of justice.
