Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The value of forensic science for the investigation of crimes and assurance of freedom, security and justice has been assessed recently. Therefore, the first researches on forensic science appeared not only in the United States of America but also in European Union. The objective of the European Commission to create the common European Forensic Science Area marks the beginning of harmonization of forensic science, its expansion from national into international level and also requires the improvement of forensic science in many member states. The Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Lithuania agrees that the current system of forensic science in Lithuania is organized and works improperly. Therefore, the first steps for the reform on forensic science in the connection with creation of common European Forensic Science Area has just taken in Lithuania
