JuozapavičiusA. (2020) “‘Special Witness’ – Between a Witness and Suspect”, Teisė, 1140, pp. 26-48. doi: 10.15388/Teise.2020.114.2.

Abstract

Article 80 § 1, Article 82 § 3 of the CCP providing that persons who might give testimony about their own possibly criminal activity may be questioned as witnesses with their consent, applying particular rules – so called “special witness” – are being analysed in this article. By revealing factual ground for becoming a “special witness”, its legal status, the author tries to find an answer to a question whether existing system of persons in the law of criminal procedure justifies existence of such a person, and overall whether this legal regulation is justified.
