• Download Verdeckte strafprozessuale Ermittlungsmaßnahmen by Thomas A Bode PDF

    By Thomas A Bode

    Die Heimlichkeit ist kleinster gemeinsamer Nenner und zugleich dogmatischer Problempunkt der verdeckten strafprozessualen Ermittlungsmaßnahmen. Entspricht Heimlichkeit dem Zwang zu selbstbelastenden Aussagen? Warum können rein beobachtende Maßnahmen überhaupt die grundrechtlich geschützten Freiheiten des Einzelnen verkürzen? Sind die Vorschriften der StPO Rechtfertigungen für solche Eingriffe oder hierfür zu unbestimmt und unverhältnismäßig? In welchen Fällen scheitert eine Rechtfertigung an der Missachtung der Menschenwürde? Antworten auf diese Fragen sind nicht nur für eine fundamentale Kritik der verdeckten Maßnahmen und ihrer Regelungen notwendig. Sie sind auch unverzichtbar, um die Vorschriften der verdeckten Maßnahmen in der StPO verstehen und sinnvoll auslegen zu können. Mit einem eigenständigen Ansatz zur Beantwortung der Grundlagenfragen werden anwendungsbezogene Lösungsvorschläge erarbeitet, die auch aktuelle Spezialprobleme wie die Online-Durchsuchung und die Quellen-TKÜ betreffen.
