Procedural Reforms

CK - Washington.   The federal diet passed procedural reforms in the criminal area, covered chiefly by the Strafprozessordnung, the criminal procedure code. We were going to provide an analysis here, but the MCNeubert blog has already a detailed description, in German. (Correction: Neubert repeats the Berlin DOJ press release.) Unlike Neubert, we believe the reforms were passed yesterday. The reform affects a variety of rules, such as the use of documents as evidence and the taking of oaths from witnesses, and we will introduce specific features here after further analysis.
