Criminal law

The criminal law comprises all statutory provisions which sanction a certain behavior. These provisions and sanctions comprise different legal acts. The most popular is the Criminal Code. However, besides the Criminal Code, many other legal acts also comprise criminal provisions. Any suspicion of a criminal offence may cause the institution of preliminary investigations by the public prosecutor. These investigations and even more so a public court hearing constitute a significant and very personal intervention in the personal life of an accused. The rules of such proceedings are established by the Code of Criminal Procedure and other legal acts. You can see: The field of law of the criminal law is broad and it is equally complex.
