Securing Legal Institutes in Criminal Proceedings

(Department of Criminal Law)

Legal institutes securing persons and objects in criminal proceedings have always presented a very interesting field for both praxis and theoretical legal research and the present, which has made this field topical especially due to the substantial amendments of its legal regulation last year, has not changed this fact the slightest bit. This topic is interesting not only because it represents, even in the context of criminal law, a very tangible expression of the public power in an individual’s sphere of interests, thus frequently being a matter of interests for constitutional law as well, but especially because strong harmonization efforts of the EU law in this field have taken place in the previous years. Especially the influence of these two legal fields on criminal procedural law creates a lot of controversies, of which the problem of conformity of the so-called extended confiscations with basic principles of the criminal proceedings, tension between human law requirements on the conditions for application of securing institutes and the need for their earliness and operational flexibility, the forms of judicial cooperation in criminal matters in this field or the possible overuse of freezing assets for a potential execution of property-related sentences etc. can be named as random examples. This section offers the participants a possibility to tackle one of these issues or any other which matches the field of legal institutes securing persons and objects (preliminary measures included) in criminal proceedings.
