The indictment as the basis for the judicial decision

A comparative law study into the framing of indictments and adherence thereto with respect to evidence, legal qualification, and punishment in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, and Germany (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The central research question is:
In which way and according to which procedure are indictments framed in Belgium, France, Italy, and Germany, to what extent are judges in those countries bound by the indictment with respect to evidence, legal qualification, and punishment, and which insights does this yield for a possible reconsideration of the Dutch legal framework?
