Abstract

FERNANDEZ RUIZ, José Manuel  and  OLAVARRIA AVENDANO, Malva. THEORY AND PRACTICE OF WRONGFUL CONVICTION CLAIM IN THE NEW CÓDIGO PROCESAL PENAL, PROVISION LETTER D) ARTICLE 473. Ius et Praxis [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.2, pp.215-255. ISSN 0718-0012.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-00122009000200008.

The article analyzes the wrongful conviction claim, primarily the provision letter d) article 473 of the Chilean Code of Criminal Procedure. On the basis of a conceptual study concerning the current legal regulation, and a empirical study in light of the application of the provision discussed, the authors account for two general kinds of problems: of legislative design and judicial interpretation. It stresses the need to properly differentiate the requirements of the wrongful conviction procedure, proposing an interpretation that should be deemed correct.

Keywords : wrongful conviction claim; new evidence; new trial; innocence.
