Most European criminal procedures (e.g. that in Germany, Italy or Hungary) are still governed by procedural legality and ex officio procedure, thus a mandatory prosecution is in place. On the contrary, in some states (such as in France) the public prosecutor has a much wider discretion as in regards of prosecution, meaning that the procedure may be discontinued for opportunistic reasons. In both cases, rules of procedure are created to ensure the rule of procedural principles and to set out the necessary exceptions. Still, faulty prosecutorial decisions may happen. Among those, the most damaging for social justice and the victims themselves are the cases, in which contrary to all legal criteria being fulfilled, the decision not to prosecute is made. Therefore, there is an inevitable need for effective means of correcting prosecutorial monopoly and decisions. To have such methods available in the national rules of procedure is also a legal obligation of all EU Member States. The victim’s right to a review of a decision not to prosecute is set out in Article 11 of Directive 2012/29/EU. Still, the implementation and the instruments available vary greatly in the national criminal procedures of the member states. Hence, the purpose of this paper is to describe and analyse different forms of such corrective means to prosecutorial monopoly in Germany (Klageerzwingungsverfahren), Italy (opposizione all’archiviazione) and France (l’action civile). Finally, as the result of the comparative outlook, conclusions are drawn and a de lege ferenda proposal is presented for the development of the Hungarian criminal procedure law regarding “substitute public prosecution” or “supplementary private prosecution” (pótmagánvád).
