This Code establishes the rules with which it is ensured that an innocent person is not convicted and the guilty person is pronounced a criminal sanction under the conditions which are proscribed by the Criminal Code and on the basis of a legally enforced procedure.
Protection of a human being and other basic social values makes the basis and scope for defining criminal acts, prescribing criminal sanctions and their enforcement to a degree necessary for repression of these offences.
Criminal proceedings aim at protecting rights and legal interests of physical and legal persons who take part therein as well as at a speedy and full resolution of crimes, identification of those guilty and ensuring correct application of law so that everyone who has committed a crime is prosecuted while everyone innocent is not punished.
