Stefcho Bankov
Published: 30 December 2021

Abstract: The article raises issues related to the lack of effective mechanisms for protection of the rights of victims of crime under the Bulgarian Penal Code. The author discusses the shortcomings in the criminal proceedings and how the application of the norms for protection of the accused’s consignment in the commission of the crime, in fact, limits the right to defense of the victim. An overview of the existing regulation of the problem in the European legal system has been made. Finally, the author examines the contradictory case law and how it in itself restricts the victim’s right to a fair trial.
