Abstract [en]

The text examines under what circumstances judges during trial may deviate from and recharacterize the charges. Depending on the legal tradition of a given country, the answer to these questions may vary. This test studies different traditions and procedural models as well as what is required under human rights law, as defined and interpreted in regional regimes and UN bodies. Finally, the text discusses and critically analyzes decisions and judgments from the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia (ICTY) and the International Criminal Court (ICC) where the judges have recharacterized the chargesduring trial.
