The Exclusion of Possibility to Extend the Period for Filing an Appeal in Criminal Proceedings as a Violation of Fair Trial Standards

The paper expounds a handful of problems stemming from the exclusion of a possibility to extend the period for filing an appeal in criminal proceedings in extensive, complex cases. According to the author, such an exclusion violates the standards of a fair trial. This problem is particularly evident in cases where there are several co-defendants who also benefit from the right to defense and where merely a short period of time for filing an appeal binds, or in cases where part of court documents is secret and one may only familiarize oneself with them in discreet conditions. Therefore, the author de lege ferenda proposes the introduction to the Code of Criminal Procedure provisions aimed at resolving the tensions begotten by the situation sketched above.
