This chapter discusses the role of the Prosecutors at trial from a procedural perspective and presents the broad-brush picture of their key functions and powers exercised in the course of trial. The first section addresses the key factors of an institutional and procedural nature that necessarily affect the Prosecutor's role, by delimiting the playing field within the bounds of which he/she is to operate when pursuing prosecution. Relying on the normative findings reached, the second half of the chapter turns to the nuts and bolts of the procedural competences and practices the Prosecutor disposes of in presenting the case to the Trial Chamber, including the role at sentencing.
