To this regard, the Romanian judicial activity in criminal cases is not away from these values of respecting standards in criminal proceedings. This situation is particularly viewed during the judgment phase of criminal proceedings at the stage of making decision. Taking into consideration all these aspects, the current paper is focused on the best practices of the activity of decision making in criminal cases in Romania, particular attention being paid to the forensic science and the way in which it influences the process of achieving decision in the framework of administering and assessing evidence based on forensic activity of investigation.
