Abstract (Swedish)
Just nu utreds möjligheten för en person att få vittna anonymt i Sverige. Detta på grund av att fler ska våga vittna, framförallt i mål som rör organiserad brottslighet där hotbild från kriminella gäng kan förekomma.

Denna uppsats ämnar utreda hur anonyma vittnen påverkar rättssäkerheten med utgångspunkt i kontradiktionsprincipen som är en av de äldsta processrättsliga principer som finns. Detta genom att titta på ett antal rättsfall från Europadomstolen, lyfta kontradiktionsprincipen och dess historia och även se på de processrättsliga regler som finns i Sverige idag.

Analysen kommer väga de olika intressen och aspekter som tagits upp och titta på hur Europadomstolen har resonerat kring rättssäkerhet och rätten till en rättvis... (More)

Analysen kommer väga de olika intressen och aspekter som tagits upp och titta på hur Europadomstolen har resonerat kring rättssäkerhet och rätten till en rättvis rättegång. Resonemang som sedan utreds med utgångspunkt i kontradiktionsprincipen och kommenteras av författaren.

Slutligen drar författaren en egen slutsats efter vad som diskuterats och tar ställning till huruvida anonyma vittnen bör införas i Sverige eller ej. (Less)
Abstract
Right now, the possibility for a person to testify anonymously in Sweden is being investigated. This is because more people must dare to testify, especially in cases related to organized crime, where threats from criminal gangs can occur.

The purpose of this essay is to investigate how anonymous witnesses influence the legal security on the basis of the adversarial principle, which is one of the oldest procedural principles that exist. This will be examined by looking at a number of court cases from the European Court of Justice, raising the adversarial principle and its history and also looking at the procedural rules that exist in Sweden today.

The analysis will weigh the various interests and aspects that have been addressed and look at how the European Court of Justice has reasoned about legal security and the right to a fair trial. Reasonings that are then investigated on the basis of the adversarial principle and commented on by the author.

Finally, the author draws an own conclusion on what has been discussed and takes a position on whether or not anonymous witnesses should be introduced in Sweden. (Less)
