Abstract

BORDALI SALAMANCA, Andrés. The Criminal Proceedings and the Victim in the Chilean Law. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2011, n.37, pp. 513-545. ISSN 0718-6851.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512011000200013.

This article analyzes the jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court and the Chilean doctrine on the interpretation of article 83, sub-paragraph 2, CPol, and the scope given to said article, which equally grants the exercise of the criminal action to the offended parties. This work shows a critical position regarding the attempts to see in this norm a fundamental right of legal protection in the interest of victims of a certain crime. A comparative analysis regarding the situation of the victims and the legal action in the Spanish and Italian law is also carried out.

Keywords : Criminal proceedings; Right to legal protection; Victims.
