Languages of publication
The paper addresses legal solutions concerning the model of witness interviewing. The discussion is of comparative nature, as it refers both to the regulations contained in the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1928, as well as to the provisions of the current criminal procedure. It aims at a synthetic analysis of key changes in the model of interviewing a witness taking into consideration historical factors, as well as their impact on the current shape of the provisions in the Criminal Procedure Regulation. While reviewing legal solutions, the author pays special attention to the process of questioning at a distance supported by devices enabling simultaneous image and sound transmission. This issue is discussed in many aspects, taking into account the views of the doctrine and the analysis of case law. Apart from the assessment of the current legal status in genere, the paper also presents the proposals of solutions in the subject matter.
