The need for an adversary procedure in penal trials

The french model of criminal procedure was created in 1539 by the « Ordonnances de Villers-Cotterets », systematized in 1760 by Colbert’s important criminal statutes and modernized by Napoléon after the failure of our attempt to adopt the english system during the period of intermediary law.

This procedure is contrary to the requirements of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Only a deep reform changing the inquisitorial spirit and bringing adversary procédure into the French procédure, acclimatized and perhaps adapted to the French culture, would bring France back to a satisfactory standard in resolving the conflict between the requirements of repression and the obligation to respect individual freedom and the presumption of innocence.
