The Italian criminal procedure begins when the Police or the Public Prosecutor becomes acquainted with a fact which could be considered a crime. Some crimes require criminal complaint by the injured party in order to proceed. Some others (the more serious ones) do not require any criminal complaint but procedure will be triggered automatically.
Once the crime is reported, investigation will take place and its duration is dependent upon type of crime.
Over the course of investigation, the person who may have committed the crime and the injured party supported by their lawyers or their technical advisers could carry out defense investigation, whose result will be submitted to the Public Prosecutor in charge for the criminal procedure, in order to support defense of each party.
Once investigation is closed, the Public Prosecutor will determine if sending the case to trial or submitting to the Judge in charge for Preliminary Investigation (Giudice per le Indagini Preliminary) a request for filing in the archives .
The suspect and the injured party may object to the request for filing in and a hearing of debate will be scheduled after the objection. In this case, the Judge in charge for Preliminary Investigation will determine if new investigation has to be carried out or rather archiving the case. For certain assumptions, the Judge may also order the Public Prosecutor to formalize an indictment against the suspect (i.e. enforced indictment).
For certain types of crime, between the end of preliminary investigation and the beginning of criminal trial, the Italian criminal code additionally provides for a “preliminary” hearing.
The preliminary hearing gives greater safeguards to the person who may have committed the crime, since during the debate, the defense attorney will explain the reasons why a trial against the suspect should not commence, as evidence gathered by the Public Prosecutor is considered to be insufficient or unsuitable to support the complaint. It will be for the Court to determine if going to trial or rendering a “pronouncement of acquittal”.
In case the criminal trial takes place, the defendant has the possibility to ask to be heard, to submit documents and witnesses on his/her behalf. The same rights are recognized to the injured party (the victim of the crime), who can participate in the criminal trial in order to obtain compensation for pecuniary and non-pecuniary losses as consequence of crime.
The list of witnesses for each party must necessarily be submitted at least seven days prior to the date scheduled for the beginning of the criminal trial (criminal case), penalty for that is the revocation of the right to submit witnesses.
The Italian criminal law allows the defendant to request for an alternative proceeding for definition of the trial against him/her. The choice of an alternative proceeding will allow for a reduced sentence, in case of conviction.
Once the first degree of judgment ends, the Court will render a judgment which must be justified and can be challenged by the defendant (in case of conviction) or by the Public Prosecutor (in case of acquittal).
The injured party is also recognized the right to challenge the judgment.
In Italy, there are three degrees of judgment: Court (collegiate or monocratic structure), Court of Appeal and Court of Cassation (i.e. Supreme Court).
