Section 33 – Examination of the legal representative

(1) In sanction proceedings, the legal representative of the corporation is free to comment or not to testify on the matter. The provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure concerning the examination of the accused shall apply accordingly to the examination of the legal representative of the corporation. Section 134 of the Code of Criminal Procedure does not apply.

(2) In other proceedings the legal representative of the corporation may also refuse to give information as a witness to such questions, the answering of which would put the corporation in danger of being held responsible for a corporate crime (Section 3). Section 55 (2) and 56 of the Code of Criminal Procedure shall apply mutatis mutandis.
