Article

Kenmerkend voor het huidige tijdsgewricht is dat incidenten in de sfeer van de tenuitvoerlegging van strafrechtelijke sancties, de politiek lijken te verplichten tot het nemen van onmiddellijke (wettelijke) maatregelen. De discussie hierover raakt direct aan zwaarwegende belangen, van gedetineerden, tbs-gestelden, slachtoffers en van de maatschappi...
Article
Background: The limited literature on victim characteristics of offenders found not guilty by reason of insanity (NGRI) shows that most victims are adults who are known to the offender. It is currently unclear whether victims are mainly male or female or whether there are differences in the type of victims according to the offenders' psychiatric d...
Article
A crime victim’s relationship to the offender is widely recognized as an important variable in the study of victims and the criminal justice system. However, studies concerning comparisons of the needs of victims at various relational distances to the offender are lacking. The authors studied how the victim’s need for protection and punishment corr...

Article
This article addresses the development of international policy in relation to victims of crime. It starts with an outline of the 1985 United Nations (UN) Declaration of Basic Principles of Justice for Victims of Crime and Abuse of Power. It demonstrates that compliance by Member States with the provisions of the Declaration is still unsatisfactory,...
Article
The position of victims of crime has shown vast improvements since the 1970's. Thirty years ago it was correct to assert that the victim was the forgotten party of the criminal justice process, while this would be at odds with the actual situation of victims today. Policy at the level of the European Union is laid down in the Council Directive 2004...

Article
The past 25 years mark a period of transition in Dutch criminal procedure. A quarter century ago, victims of crime had a very limited role to play in the framework of criminal justice. The situation was governed by the Code of Criminal Procedure, which entered into force in 1926. This Code more or less ‘intrumentalised’ the position of the victim....
Article
Full-text available
Although restorative justice is often presented as a victim-oriented reform of criminal justice procedures, there is a relative dearth of research and theory into the experiences of victims within restorative justice. Recently Heather Strang, Lawrence Sherman and their associates started develop theory and research that attempts to fill this relati...
Article
Full-text available
The core document so far in the field of the protection of victims' rights is the Declaration of Basic Principles of Justice for Victims of Crime and Abuse of Power, adopted in 1985 by the UN General Assembly. Starting from the notion that this is a declaration only, it was suggested by some to develop a victims' rights convention, aiming to improv...
Article
Full-text available
The authors have regarded euthanasia in the broader framework of Dutch penal policies. They present euthanasia as a typical example of the pragmatic - rather than dogmatic - way the Dutch try to tackle difficult moral problems in connection with the criminal justice system. Definitions, statutory law, procedural issues, borderline cases, profession...
Article

The fight against money laundering has been energetically introduced and developed into a global enforcement regime. Various economic and financial justifications have been put forward, which are not self-evident. The simple and basic foundation is that ill-gotten profits should not remain in the possession of the criminal. Nevertheless, the cause...

The 1985 UN Declaration of Basic Principles of Justice for Victims of Crime and Abuse of Power, and the Council of Europe's Recommendation (85) 11 on the Position of the Victim in the Framework of Criminal Law and Procedure are important documents that reflect an international consensus on legal rights for victims. In many European jurisdictions, s...
Article
In the Netherlands new legislation has come into force in order to deal with insider trading. The legislator followed a new strategy. This time, instead of a provision with well-defined criteria, a sort of a catch all-provision was created. The aim was to avoid difficulties in proving the offence. As a consequence, a new problem has arisen: usual a...
Article
Teneinde zowel recht te doen aan de belangen van beleggers (als effecteneigenaren) als aan die van de banken bij een hanteerbaar systeem van levering en bewaring van effecten heeft de wetgever bij wege van de Wet giraal effectenverkeer voorzien in een stelsel van giraal effectenverkeer. In de praktijk (b)lijkt dit te werken, doch juridisch gezien z...
