The prosecuratorial system, as a child of Revolution, came into being during the French Revolution of 1789. Today, it is recognized that the functions of a prosecuratorial system include: firstly, checking the judiciary, i.e. mutual supervision of judges and procurators through power division in litigation; secondly, controlling the police, i.e. overseeing the legality of police activities; and thirdly, guaranteeing the legality of criminal lawsuit and the protection of human rights.
