    Hello again

    What is, if any, the difference between "il codice penale" and "il codice di procedura penale"? I believe "codice penale" is equivalent to "penal code". Am I right?

    In my text it says: "Visti gli articoli 480, 486 del codice di procedura penale, 685, 467 del codice penale, questa corte dichiara..."

    Thank you.

    Hi,
    "Codice di Procedura Penale" = "Code of Criminal Procedure"
    "Codice Penale" = "Penal Code"
    Cheers
