The right of a person fined to submit an account to the prosecutor

A person fined has the right to submit an account concerning his or her own matter. The account can be delivered in writing to any prosecutor´s office. The account can also be submitted electronically. The collection code of the fine matter must be included. As cases involving fines are decided using the electronic system, an oral account will not suffice.

The account must be delivered to a prosecutor´s office within 14 days of the notification given by the police to the person fined. In his or her decision, the prosecutor must take into consideration an account submitted prior to the decision if it affects the amount of the day fine or is otherwise significant.

Any accounts submitted after the prosecutor has decided the matter will no longer be considered.
