Chisinau, 14 July /MOLDPRES/ - The judging of criminal files will be able to be made in the absence of the concerned person, if the latter evades the criminal prosecution or the trial. The provision is included in a draft law adopted by the parliament in the final reading today.   

The document regards the procedure of accusing in the absence of the person, as well as the judging of the cause in the lack of the defendant, for the cases in which the latter evades the criminal prosecution or evades the participation in the trial. At the same time, the draft also provides for the confiscation of the assets regarded in the concerned cases, if this is seen in the sentence.  

At the same time, the legislative amendments provide a string of procedural guarantees, such as the right of the person convicted in absence to ask for the resumption of the criminal file, if he/she submits an application to the competent bodies personally or through a lawyer. The person’s right to a fair trial and the one to be defended is guaranteed in this way.
