Abstract. This Articel is focused on the issue of protecting particular interests, which interferes with the rights of the defense, when performing evidence in criminal proceedings. In special cases where the life and health of the witness or the public interest may be endangered, the law permits the limitation of the defendant‘s fundamental rights and freedoms only if certain basic conditions guarantee the fairness of the trial and minimize the interference with the defendant‘s right to a proper defense respecting the principles of the contradictory nature of the evidence process. In my contribution, I deal mainly with witness testimony obtained from a person whose identity is in the criminal proceedings confidential. I refer to the rules that have emerged from the case law of the European Court of Human Rights on how to handle a collision of special interests.

Key words: adversarial principle, evidence, questioning of a witness, witness with concealed identity, undercover agent, safeguards of a fair trial
