I diritti del minore nel processo italiano, tra difesa tecnica e ascolto

Di Claudio Cecchella -

Having examined the state of implementation in Italy of the New York and Strasbourg Convention on the appointment of a defender of the child in the trial concerning rights that concern him, denouncing a difference between positive law and its application, the report highlights that the defense of the child remains relegated to hearing only by the judge, a sort of self-defense, while the recent reform with law n. 206 of 2021, the legislator has finally expanded the hypotheses of appointing a curator – defender of the minor, finally opening the child to the guarantees of defense and due process.
