Abstract:

"This book presents a topical approach to comparative criminal procedure, focusing on the roles of public prosecutor, police, victims and defense counsel in the investigation and trial of criminal cases. Separate chapters are dedicated to the investigation in general, search and seizure, wiretapping and other privacy invasions, police interrogation, exclusionary rules, hearsay and the right to confrontation, plea-bargaining and other methods of simplifying the trial, the presumption of innocence and the roles of professional judges, juries, lay assessors and magistrates in decisions relating to guilt and sentencing." "Unique in Thaman's approach is his use of high court jurisprudence and statutes from the United Kingdom, as well as from France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Russia (which he has translated into English), to elucidate the European approach to important and controversial areas of criminal procedure, as well as his linkage of criminal procedure with its roots in substantive law. Thaman looks at the early reactions to crimes committed flagrantly or in secret as the historical basis for modern criminal procedure. The approaches of the old inquisitorial system, with its use of torture to solve circumstantial evidence crimes, are also explored. Special emphasis is placed on how lay judges, in the form of juries or mixed courts, have influenced the development of the law."--BOOK JACKET.
