The Constitutional Court has allowed an appeal against the lawfulness and validity of the reason for refusing to initiate criminal proceedings. An investigator may refuse if he does not see an event or corpus delicti. Investigators and courts may confuse the two grounds, but there is a difference between them, the CC said. And confusion can lead to a person being indirectly accused of a misdemeanour, even if there is insufficient evidence. Lawyers were optimistic about the ruling.
