Abstract

The article describes the problem associated with the legislative process in the field of criminal procedural legislation. There are numerous blunders and inconsistencies that the legislator admits in the text of the Code of Criminal Procedure of the Russian Federation due to non-compliance with the requirements of legal techniques. Realizing that the legislator will never be immune from mistakes in accepting, changing and abolishing the norms of the criminal procedural legislation, the science of the criminal procedure has developed and offered the law enforcement agent a means of resolving the emerging problem situation when applying such norms in the form of corrective interpretation. With the help of this kind of interpretation, such subjects of the criminal process as the inquirer, investigator, prosecutor and the court will be able to correctly understand the meaning of the erroneous provisions of the criminal procedure code of the Russian Federation, which the legislator laid in them. The use of corrective interpretation will allow these entities to correct the mistakes made by the legislator in the text of criminal procedural legislation of a technical, semantic and logical nature, which will lead to the correct application of its current provisions.
