The report 'Current practices in the national criminal justice system in relation to victims of crimes' was written as part of the initiative Towards a More Responsive Victim-Centered Approach of the Criminal Justice System (RE-JUST) through desk research and information requests to relevant institutions and organisations. It is also based on CSD's long-term monitoring and studies of the situation of victims of crime in the country and provides a general overview of the approaches and methods used by police, prosecutors, judges, in cases that involve victims of crimes as witnesses or in other procedural capacities. Main obstacles to victims' access to justice have been pointed out, as well as points of non-compliance with European and global standards.
