It is also important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after a raid or police search. Documents or goods have probably been seized and it is possible to file a complaint about this in order to get them back. It is also important to gain access to the criminal dossier as quickly as possible in order to check how the public prosecutor’s office is using the results of the search. Hence it may be important to request independent reports in order to challenge the results of forensic investigations.
