The trial process focuses on the enforcement of the law. Moreover, the suspect traditionally has been central in this process. In recent years there has been increasing attention to the position of the victim. Legally seen, the term ‘victim’ does not exist. In criminal proceedings the victim has no official role.

Robberies have an enormous impact on victims and their environment and provide a serious sense of insecurity. Robbers therefore can count on heavy penalties. The Public Prosecution and the Police work closely together to reduce the number of robberies. Entrepreneurs have a key role in preventing robberies (by security and/or camera surveillance). Citizens also help to solve robberies.
