Contents of the new Code of Criminal Procedure

The new Code of Criminal Procedure will consist of eight parts, or ‘books’. The changes will make the Code easier to use, improve the administration of justice by the courts, and improve the performance of the criminal justice system.

The outline policy document (Contourennota) (in Dutch), which was sent to the House of Representatives on 30 September 2015, contains a lot of information on the proposed changes to the Code. The provisional table of contents clearly shows what subjects will be covered and where.
