French term or phrase: instruire à charge et à décharge
Hello,
I'm reading a text on criminal law and procedure, which I know very little about in English, let alone French. How would "instruire à charge et à décharge" be translated in this context:
"Le juge d'instruction doit en principe instruire tout aussi bien à charge qu'à décharge."

Merci en avance!
Julie
