Final serving

Once a preliminary investigation has been completed, the person who is suspected of having committed the offence is informed. This is referred to as final serving.

The suspect is entitled to examine all the investigation material and to request the police to carry out further investigations, for instance question more witnesses.

The person responsible for directing the preliminary investigation will then decide whether or not this should be done. In the event of lack of agreement, the district court may settle the matter.
