The criminal justice process


  • if you are summoned as a witness, you are obligated to arrive at a court
  • no one has to testify against himself/herself.

The police are responsible for carrying out the pre-trial investigation of an offence. If the prosecutor decides to bring charges, the case will be resolved by the local district court.
