General criminal law
The criminal cell offers assistance to both suspects and victims during the criminal investigation (including interrogations, pre-trial detention procedures and expert assessments) and the criminal proceedings on the merits. In doing so, it always keeps the client's interests in mind and strives for an appropriate punishment for the (alleged) offender or fair reparation for the victim.
Over the past 30 years, VSA has built up expertise and experience in almost all areas of criminal law. The criminal cell is particularly familiar with the following matters belonging to 'general criminal law', among others:
- aggravated and violent crimes, such as murder and manslaughter, beatings and injuries (intentional and unintentional) and arson
- capital offences, such as extortion, theft, handling and money laundering, fraud and abuse of trust
- offences related to narcotics
- organised crime, including drugs and human trafficking
- white-collar crime, such as private and public bribery, forgery and use of false documents, cybercrime and violation of professional secrecy.
