Chapter 2 – The First-Instance Commercial Offence Proceedings

As announced a few weeks ago, JPM Senior Associate Milovan Bogdanović now takes a closer look at the first instance proceeding , and what responsible persons should keep in mind in case they are subjected to a commercial offence proceeding.

Chapter 2 provides an in-depth look at commercial offense proceedings in Serbia, explaining the general principles like the accusatory system, the role of the public prosecutor, and the application of criminal procedure rules.

The article outlines the preliminary investigation stage where offenses can be reported, the public prosecutor’s actions, and investigative measures.  Despite being simplified in comparison to a standard criminal procedure, a commercial offence proceeding still represents a field where 80% of defendants opt for formal defense due to the complexity of legislation and procedural rules.
