Self-incriminating statements of the defendant - 9th Conference of the Hellenic Union of Criminal Lawyers - Participation in a collective volume - Issues of Evidence in Criminal Procedure

The study entitled “The Self-Incriminating Statements of the Accused” was the subject of my contribution to the 9th Conference of the Association of Greek Criminal Lawyers, which took place on the 20th and 21st of October 2023 in Thessaloniki, which was recently published by the Law Library.

The study deals with the problem of the procedural use of the self-incriminating statements of the defendant. For the completeness of the inquiry of the issue, it was considered appropriate to make a comparative reference to the way in which self-incriminating statements are treated both by Greek jurisprudence and the European Court of Human Rights and the US Supreme Federal Court, whose jurisprudence is, admittedly, particularly advanced. 

After a classification of self-incriminating statements according to the way in which the investigating authorities have gained access to them, the possibilities of their procedural use are then explored for each case. In particular, it examines what are the critical conditions that must be met in order for such statements to be freely exploited by the court
