Children in court

Even children can be witnesses in court if they became a victim of a crime or witnessed a crime. The law provides a lot of protective rules and regulations for children. Juveniles and children under 16 are only allowed to be interviewed by the judge. Other people are forbidden to ask them. It is much easier to exclude the public or the accused. Parents or other legal guardians may accompany their children.
