Measures Ensuring Security of Participants of Criminal Proceedings: International Legal Aspect
The article describes international legal positions ensuring the safety of participants in criminal
proceedings. The international community has developed documents that provide states with unified
and universally accepted legal provisions to regulate the statutory position of a participant in criminal proceedings. The national legislation should be brought in line with the global requirements. Generalizing the existing international legal instruments, the authors identify universal safety measures protecting participants in criminal proceedings. The protection of witnesses and victims is a guarantee of establishing the defendant’s guilt. Assistance in criminal proceedings facilitates the effective and timely collection of evidence.
