Proceedings in Cases of Minor Injured Party


  • Morareanu, Camelia Serban

    (University of Pitesti)


Currently, the Criminal Procedure Code and Penal Code there is no specific regulation for treatment of minor victims of various procedural antisocial acts. There is not a separate procedural hearing the minor injured parties or to address specific techniques that must follow judicial bodies. However, both the current regulations of the Criminal Code and the new Criminal Code, there are a number of acts that are punishable as crimes and dealing with minor liability. This reality requires, as in the procedural level, the injured minor to enjoy a specific treatment during the trial by the judicial bodies. This treatment, both in the criminal accusation stage, of criminal and judicial phase, should take into account that, by nature, children are less developed intellectually and emotionally. In this, they are victimized, they are less able to relate their experiences and feelings and generally depend on the adults who are their circle of family and friends. As a source of information for judicial authorities, victimized children, is extremely difficult to treat. Therefore judicial need to address to take into account the characteristics of physiological, psychological and physical, so that finally, the statements of minors can be considered truthful.
