Abstract: »This paper intends to call into question the judicial interpretation of “instancia privada” (who had the right to press charges) as well as the debate about the prosecutors’ right to follow the case once someone had pressed charges on a sex crime. I try to show how beyond its “mixed” character (the obligation to press charges to begin the case and public prosecution later on) established by the codes and doctrine it was still a controversial issue in court. At the same time I intend to debate about the values at play when the judicial system had to deal with these crimes, as well as to question who were considered the actual victims of them. Finally I attempt to explore briefly some links between right and gender/sexuality.« (Source: Derecho y Ciencias Sociales)
