Amendment to the Criminal Code

Issue: PRO BONO 09/2010

Act No. 301/2005 Coll. The Criminal Code has strengthened the adversarial elements in legal proceedings. By making the process more adversarial, the purpose and position of the parties to a proceeding have been emphasized; and the rights of the defence and the injured party, but also the position of the prosecution, particularly the prosecutor's responsibility for the matter in question having been submitted to a court, have been strengthened. Changes introduced to the Criminal Code by Act No. 224/2010 Coll. required further amendment of the code.
