Criminal Order

If you receive a criminal order from the Public Prosecution Service (OM), paying it means that you agree with the offense for which the criminal order was issued. This will result in a notation on your criminal record. If you disagree with the criminal order you received, you must object within 14 days from the date of the criminal order. After objection, your case will be heard by the court.

You may also be invited to a hearing with the Public Prosecutor. During this hearing, you are allowed to have a lawyer present. Before the hearing, you can thoroughly discuss the entire case file with your lawyer to ensure you are well-prepared. A hearing with the Public Prosecutor has the same consequences for your criminal record as a hearing in court.

Noordanus Advocatuur is ready to assist you both in filing an objection and attending a hearing with the Public Prosecutor.
