This book examines the rights of accused persons in criminal proceedings. The case-law of the international bodies dealing with this issue is presented and critically examined by an author who has contributed to its creation for almost a quarter of a century. The law of the European Convention is emphasized because of its advanced procedures, and the quality and quantity of its case-law.
