ADJUDICATION OF CRIMINAL CASES

ADJUDICATION OF CRIMINAL CASES

 

Service Description

 

Prosecution of Criminal cases is at the instance of the State through the Directorate of Public Prosecution’s office.  The Court’s duty is to hear the evidence brought before it and make a determination of whether or not the Accused is guilty.

 

How Do I obtain a Service?

 

All criminal cases start with the Police who investigate and bring the Accused before the Courts for trial.  If you are complaining about a criminal act against you, you need to report the matter to the Police.

 

How do I apply for Service?

 

You need not apply other than give a statement to the Police and may subsequently be called upon to give evidence in Court to prove the case against the Accused person.

 

Cost Involved – Obtaining Service

 

No cost is involved.  If you are called to come and give evidence in Court, the Court will meet your traveling and subsistence expenses.
