1. MEASURE IMPLEMENTATION

Словакия

Is this measure possible in your Member State under International Judicial Cooperation?

Yes, a letter of request for international judicial assistance in criminal matters is essential. The police officer is authorised to order the person, if necessary for performance of the duties according to the Police Corps Law, to prove his/her identity by an ID card (§ 18 of the Police Corps Law). At each stage of the criminal proceedings, the competent criminal authority shall find out the identity of the involved person prior to performing the given act. In the event the ordered person refuses to prove his/her identity or is unable to reasonably prove his/her identity, such person may be taken to a police department in order to prove his/her identity. If the evidence requires that it is necessary to establish the identity of the person who remained at the crime scene, the person in question is obligated to tolerate the acts necessary for such findings, including the collection of finger prints.
