Search for evidence in favor of the defense


The principle of equality between accusation and defense in the context of criminal proceedings is enshrined in art. 111 of the Constitution of the Italian Republic. The Italian legal system therefore allows both parties to seek and provide evidence in their favor to be asserted in criminal proceedings.

Defensive investigations are governed by Law no. 397 of 7 December 2000 and by art. 222 and 327-bis of the Code of Criminal Procedure. In the context of defensive investigations, to identify evidence useful for the defense of his client, the lawyer has the right to use the help of a private investigator.
