Azione civile e parità delle armi in materia probatoria

Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The paper offers an analysis of some problematic aspects deriving from the inclusion of civil action in the penal process and from the maintenance of a constraint (albeit attenuated) between prosecution and civil action. In particular, it deals with the theme of the testimony of the civil party and, more generally, of the probative use of the knowledge of the parties. Considering the values involved (the equality of arms between the parts of the criminal trial, the equal treatment of the parties in civil and criminal proceedings, the cognitive needs of the criminal process that often lead to consider fundamental the knowledge of the victim, the epistemological canons that should lead to a clear distinction between quid probandum and quid probatum), a remediation of the relationship between civil action and criminal action, based on their complete separation, seems appropriate
