It is not always easy for judges to reach this end and it requires cooperation and collaboration of competent experts who are fully equipped with relevant skills and technologies to help judges to achieve the final objective, i.e. administration of justice. The forensic medicine is one of the most important members of this group, which stands first in Criminal Procedure Act because of benefits derived from its specialty and opinion.
