Without lodging of charges, without the availability of persons in the criminal procedure, in respect of whom the issue of their prosecution is being decided, it is impossible to implement the objectives of the criminal procedure. The definition of the concept of the prosecution in the criminal procedure, its significance, as well as characteristics and analysis of the issues, related to the modification of charges are the key issues of this research.

But the person, directing the process, the prosecutor has the possibility of their elimination by making changes in the accusation presented.
The prosecution in the criminal procedure is the basis of the criminal procedure, contributes to the problem solving of the criminal procedure, the goals of the Latvian Criminal and Procedural Law, which consists in establishing of such an order of the criminal procedure, which provides the effective use of the provisions of the Criminal Law and the fair settlement of the criminal and legal relations without the undue interference in private life. The prosecution represents the subject of the charge, a description of the circumstances of the committed criminal act, the qualification of the criminal act, its nature.
