SAMPEDRO-ARRUBLA, Julio Andrés. NOTES FOR A RE-HUMANIZATION OF PENAL JUSTICE: IN SEARCH OF A RECREATIONAL MODEL OF THE PENAL SYSTEM FROM THE VICTIMS. Vniversitas [online]. , pp. 153-172. ISSN 0041-9060.
The history of Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure in Colombia, coincides with a gradual marginization of the victims in the criminal justice model. The repeated amendments to the legislation identify the victims with the passive subject of crime leaving out of the criminal trial and without any attention other people or groups who suffers the effect of crime. As time goes by, the perspective of criminal law tends towards a more humanitarian system that effectively recognizes their rights, with a correlative obligation for those who try to hinder their fulfillment.
