Victim of Theft or other crime during your holiday in Italy?

With TLA support, an experienced lawyer will always be by your side.

Foreigners involved in a criminal procedure in Italy are very often not informed of their rights recognized by the Italian law.If the foreign person, who is victim of crime, thinks that the language barrier could interfere with his/her own right to obtain a compensation for the damage suffered  during an Italian criminal trial, such a belief is absolutely wrong.

The foreign injured party, who has suffered a damage as a result of a crime, can participate in the trial through a special prosecutor.

In this latter case, it is generally the injured party’s defence attorney who acts on behalf of his/her client. It will be sufficient to confer a special power of attorney drafted in two languages (Italian and the foreigner’s language) on the lawyer, it will empower the prosecutor to participate in the trial instead of the injured party and submit a request for compensation for damage on his/her behalf.

Those institutions assigned to ensure compliance with the law regulations very often omit information regarding the foreigner’s rights within an Italian criminal procedure.
