Description The article deals with possible ways of accessing information on decision-making of criminal courts. It analyzes the procedures under the Code of Criminal Procedure, the law requiring provision of information on courts’ activities under the Act on Free Access to Information. The Code of Criminal Procedure requires law enforcement authorities to inform about their activities, primarily through media. The public is usually allowed to be present (and make records) during court hearings on criminal cases. Moreover, selected persons are allowed to look into the courts’ files. Anyone can access information published by the Supreme Court or the Constitutional Court, however, these are not obliged to publish all the information concerning their activities. Other limits are brought by the Act on Free Access to Information, the provisions of which often cause certain interpretive difficulties. This is probably one of the reasons why the legislative process relevant to concerned issues takes place these months.
