Legal assistance of a lawyer
Regardless of the role of the principal and his procedural status in a criminal case, qualified persons need to be prosecuted as well as acting as witnesses in the case. The most important guarantee for protecting the rights of witnesses is the opportunity to invite a lawyer. During the interrogation of witnesses without a lawyer, there are cases of the mental impact exerted on them. In the presence of a lawyer, pressure on witnesses is significantly reduced. A witness for the first time in a criminal trial often still does not fully understand the meaning of his testimony and is ready to sign anything without a lawyer, without going into the essence of what was written. In the future, such testimony may entail negative consequences for the witness himself.
