Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

The aim of the article is to give an insight into legal protection of victims of criminal
offenses in the aspect of constitutional legal acts and values. In the protection of
victims of criminal offenses, a great importance is attributed not only to the national
legal regulations, especially the Constitution, but to the international legal acts, as well.
The author does not claim to give a complete and comprehensive problem analysis. The
basic idea of the article deals is directed at the necessity for more consistent protection
not only of any individual’s rights and freedom, as defined in the Constitution, but
especially at providing for those people’s legal protection, who have been subject to
criminal offenses. It is important not only to take supportive action, but also to grant
compensation for a specific damage. In order for the victims to receive sufficient
support, help and protection, the public services should coordinate their work, and
become involved at all administrative levels – at the European Union level, and at
the national, regional and local levels.
