DEFENSIVE INVESTIGATIONS IN ITALY AND ABROAD
An event organized by the FM “Forensic Movement” on December 4th, which was also attended by our Section Leader Italy the Criminologist Dr. Mareglen Tomori
The FORENSIC MOVEMENT - Milan Section, as part of the annual initiatives aimed at updating and vocational training, organized training event on defensive investigations.
The event, open to all legal practitioners, the academic community and experts on the subject, aims to draw a complete picture of this institute, in its theoretical and operational profiles, both with reference to the national framework and how much to the supranational ones.
The training event concerns to the open questions inherent to the correct exercise of the right to defend oneself by trying. This right, although of constitutional derivation, is not easy to implement in a system that, on the one hand, still has the dominus of preliminary investigations in the public prosecutor's office and, on the other, has not solved the knots relating to investigations abroad in their multiple manifestations. The framework of the event was completed by the contribution of the experience "in the field" of a private investigator and an IT consultant. The topics were also discussed in terms of the obligations imposed on the lawyer by the ethical standards. The topics were treated according to the teaching methodology of the "frontal lesson" by the speakers. In this perspective, the event was fully consistent with the dictates of the Regulation for the continuous training of lawyers, issued by the National Forensic Council, given that the initiative is characterized by the concrete possibility given to the participants to acquire new knowledge and deepen the notions on the subject.
