Andrei ZARAFIU, A General Theory of Legal Acts in Criminal Proceedings
Unlike civil procedure, criminal procedural process does not allow for the semantic equivalence between the concept of trial act and procedural act.

Due to the public character of the criminal action and fundamental principle of officiousness in criminal process, all activities and trial-measures are accomplished through an intricate whole of judicial acts.

This paper tries to identify general conditions of acts through which criminal procedural activity is accomplished and made dynamic, regardless of its primary or secondary character.

These conditions can be considered as criteria for the correct establishment of the legal nature and functionality of judicial acts in criminal process.

Key-words: judicial act, form, conditions, trial act, procedural act
