FALCONE SALAS, Diego. Concept and Systematization of the Illegal Detention in the Chilean Criminal Procedure. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2012, n.38, pp.433-495. ISSN 0718-6851. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512012000100011.
As from the date the Code of Criminal Procedure became effective in 2000, judges and criminal oral trial courts are competent to hear and rule over the legality of the detention of the accused. This article aims at contributing to the clarification of what is an illegal detention and proposing a way to systematize the hypotheses in which it is presented in a criminal proceeding.
