On Prosecutorial Ethics

The code of con­duct of the Pro­se­cu­ti­on Ser­vi­ce ser­ves as a guide in our rapidly chang­ing world.

Pro­se­cu­to­ri­al ethics offer advi­ce and sugg­est­ions, and they deter­mi­ne for the pro­se­cu­tors and every other staff mem­ber of the Pro­se­cu­ti­on Ser­vi­ce what is exemp­lary and what is not.

Fol­lo­wing the code of con­duct allows our col­le­agues both in their pro­fes­si­o­nal and in their pri­vate life to ensure they act honor­ably.

We carry out our varied and diverse work with the following recommendations in mind:

we intend to do our dut­i­es impar­ti­ally, con­sis­tently, effi­ci­ently, in a timely man­ner and wit­ho­ut inter­fe­ren­ce

we respect and pro­tect human dig­nity, obser­ve and comply with human rights and avoid all forms of discri­mi­na­ti­on

we pay par­ti­cu­lar attent­ion to the disad­van­tag­ed and vul­ne­rab­le, espe­ci­ally to minors, vic­tims and dis­ab­led per­sons

we coope­ra­te with our part­ner orga­ni­za­tions, other aut­ho­ri­ti­es or other rep­re­s­en­ta­ti­ves of the legal pro­fes­si­on in a firm but respect­ful man­ner

in cri­mi­nal pro­ce­e­dings, our deci­sions are based on the objec­tive assess­ment of the evi­den­ce

in the field of pub­lic law, we seek to avert impa­ir­ment result­ing from vio­la­ti­on of law

In our per­so­nal lives, we shall beha­ve pro­fes­si­o­nally with law-abiding atti­tu­de. The mem­bers of the Pro­se­cu­ti­on Ser­vi­ce can­not accept gifts, rewards, bene­fits and can­not sug­gest that they would accept these if being offe­red in con­nec­ti­on with their pro­se­cu­to­ri­al acti­vi­ti­es.

The detai­led stan­dards of ethi­cal con­duct are deter­mi­ned by a recom­men­da­ti­on from the Gene­ral Pro­se­cu­tor
