Abstract

Accelerated forms of criminal proceedings have become enormously important in many jurisdictions. But how do authorities achieve this acceleration in practice? The author illustrates this using the example of the Swiss criminal order procedure. On the basis of a file analysis, the formal and informal strategies are identified with which the police and the public prosecutor's office are able to construct the trap characteristics that make a quick conviction by order of summary punishment admissible.

Abstract

Die Arbeit beinhaltet eine kritische Untersuchung des Einsatzes der Kronzeugenregelung in Brasilien. Im Rahmen eines Rechtsvergleichs mit dem deutschen Recht sowie einer empirischen Analyse der brasilianischen Praxis wird gezeigt, wie der Gebrauch der Kronzeugenregelung grundlegende Garantien des brasilianischen Strafprozessrechts unterwandert. Unter Rückgriff auf wirtschaftswissenschaftliche Literatur werden zudem ernstzunehmende, negative Externalitäten festgestellt. Die Arbeit kommt zu dem Schluss, dass der Einsatz solcher Methoden einer Privatisierung des Ermittlungsverfahrens und der Strafverfolgung gleichkommt. Die Verknüpfung der Kronzeugenregelung mit dem Ideal einer „konsensualen Justiz“ wird abgelehnt.AbstractBased on empirical research, the book develops a critical analysis of the use of leniency policies in Brazil. Drawing on a comparative perspective with German Law, the book shows how the current practice of leniency policies in Brazil jeopardizes fundamental guarantees of criminal procedure. The book also draws on a growing body of economic literature to assert that leniency agreements have serious – albeit unnoticed – side effects and may lead to significant negative externalities. The book rejects the association of leniency policies with the ideal of “consensual justice” and affirms that these mechanisms represent a form of privatization of investigative and prosecutorial activities, exploring the expectations and risks of this process.

Abstract

The concept of equality of arms is often used in the context of criminal proceedings but is rarely defined clearly. The present work is preparing to give the term an outline. It highlights the historical roots of this important structural principle and shows the goals of equality of arms. The work pays particular attention to the case law of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). In the decisive evidence procedure, this requires a procedural balance between the accused person on the one hand and law enforcement authorities on the other. To what extent does Swiss procedural reality - with its postponement of crucial procedural steps in the pre-litigation - meet this demand? Based on empirical data, it is shown that the institutional superiority of law enforcement agencies in the underregulated preliminary proceedings has the potential to objectively restrict the defendant's rights of defense. The author discusses how this problem can be dealt with in a holistic view of the Swiss criminal trial using various variants.
