Abstract:In Germany, leading investigations and initial of prosecution are the statutory duty of public prosecutors. But in fact,investigations of criminal cases principally are completed by police irrespectively. With the opportunity principal rising, the pros-ecutor’s role as the filters of cases in the pre-trial stage appears to be more and more important. The decision was made only by the judge and in the trial court in past, but now it may be made in pre-trial process by prosecutor solely. Hence, the prosecutor is the developing judicial officer. Accordingly, the number of cases sent to the court by the prosecutors in Germany is only the little part of the total ones. In practice, the prosecutor in Germany has become the central player in the criminal justice system.
