No shortened trials in cases of premeditated murder
There will be no shortened trials in the case of premeditated murder. This was decided after a one-hour debate by members of the parliamentary legal committee when voting on amendments to the Code of Criminal Procedure at second reading. Although members of the Legal Committee voted last week to drop the possibility of shortened trials in cases of causing serious injuries, lawmakers decided to keep it.
Shortened trials presuppose a reduction of penalties in case of full confession by the offender.
