Defense in criminal proceedings at the stage of pre-trial investigation

Reading time: 3 min.

Any criminal case cannot be treated lightly. Even one seemingly insignificant mistake sometimes leads to inevitable consequences. That is why the lawyer as the suspect's defender plays a very important role even at the stage of the pre-trial investigation. This stage is the formation of the main foundations of the case and the line of future defense. Our specialists - lawyers Prykhodko and Partners will be able to protect your interests at the stage of pre-trial investigation.

The current Criminal Procedure Code defines the pre-trial investigation as follows: the stage of criminal proceedings, the beginning of which is the moment of entering information about an active criminal offense into the Unified Register of Pretrial Investigations, and the end of which is the closing of criminal proceedings. At the same time, the main task of the lawyer is to protect the rights, legitimate interests and freedoms of the suspect/accused.

Rights of the client at the stage of pre-trial investigation

Defending the suspect is a critically important issue at the stage of the pre-trial investigation. It is at this stage that the further resolution of the criminal case is largely determined.

The suspect has the right to involve a lawyer even at the stage of the pre-trial investigation. Prykhodko and Partners specialists provide a whole range of services: from consulting to active participation in investigative actions.

The suspect can refuse to testify and get access to investigative evidence that was collected against him during the pre-trial investigation stage. The rights of suspects include compliance with all procedural guarantees, namely:

  1. The use of psychological and physical pressure is inadmissible.
  2. Cooperation with a lawyer
  3. Providing the necessary information.

Therefore, high-quality protection at the pre-trial investigation stage is a guarantee of respect for the suspect's rights and a fair investigation that will not go beyond the current Ukrainian legislation.
