Person of Trust

Anyone who becomes victim of a crime is entitled to be accompanied by a person of trust while being interrogated as a witness by the police, prosecutor’s office or the court.

The injured party can choose freely the person of its trust. Typical persons of trust are employees of a victim support Organisation, psychologists, but also spouses, relatives or friends.

Victims who are minors can generally be accompanied by their parents, guardians or statutory representatives, even if the public is excluded from the main proceedings.
