Law/Patents
Spanish term or phrase: Ley de Enjuiciamiento Criminal
The functional equivalent in British law?

Once drawn up, the DENUNCIAS were taken to the "Juzgado" , and a stamped copy was returned to the DENUNCIANTES.

My italics: why is the 'denuncia' taken to the Court? Shouldn't it go to the police?

Also, re. a previous example, the words in CAPITALS.
