Summary/Abstract: This article examines two standards of the European Court of Human Rights applicable to the cases of domestic violence, namely the state duty to conduct an effective investigation and the obligation to prevent human life. Potential discord of Bulgarian practice with the European standards has been identified when the institution of criminal proceedings for domestic violence depends on the will of the victim. Recommendations to the prosecutors‘practice and a proposal forimprovement of Bulgarianlaw are formulated accordingly.
