Social And Legal Guarantees Of Freedom And Responsibility


The article examines the stage of initiation of criminal proceedings, as one of the very first in the system of criminal justice in Russia. The authors emphasize the significance of this stage and pay attention to its individual problems. It is concluded that most of the existing problems at this stage are generated by a general imbalance in the implementation of, first of all, the right to protection. It is pointed out that one of the key arguments of opponents of the stage of institute criminal proceedings in Russian legislation is precisely the absence of the necessary conditions for the full realization of the right to defense. The article repeatedly emphasizes the provision that the stage of initiation of criminal proceedings is a specific means of protecting citizens, a guarantor of the observance of their rights and freedoms, as well as a platform on which the question of the initiation of criminal proceedings is decided as a full-fledged procedure for refuting a presumption innocence. The circumstances highlighted as problems, according to the authors, are quite solvable, the main thing is to recognize them in time, concretize and make them compliant for normative and practical solutions.
