This research concerns the evaluation of super expedited proceedings (‘super-snelrechtprocedures’) in the Netherlands. Super expedited proceedings are defined as criminal proceedings in which the case is tried in court within the period of ‘inverzekeringstelling’ (the first three days of detention in police custody). At the end of the court session, the judge will deliver the verdict. If a prison sentence is imposed, preventive custody will be ordered. This way, the sentence will be served immediately. For the application of super expedited proceedings, it is necessary for the suspect to waive his right to be summoned at least three days before the court hearing (the statutory term of summons in cases before the police court).
