Short Update: The Czech Republic prosecutors’ offices set their own restrictions

admin - April 10, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Court closures, Delayed or accelerated proceedings

Like the Czech courts, prosecutor's offices set their own restrictions on access to their buildings, working from home and remote communication. Inquiries of the criminal courts in Prague have indicated that prosecutors have limited their court attendance to a minimum. Prosecutors only attend hearings regarding detention or in cases where delays may cause frustration of the criminal proceedings (i.e. cases where the statute of limitations may otherwise lapse).

In practice, this policy restricts conduct of oral hearings before the criminal courts because the attendance of a prosecutor is mandatory.
