(Translation of Abstract: M. Lourdes Fernandez Manzano - Spanish version)

From the perspective of a small prosecutor’s office I will explain how we gained the knowledge of the victim-offender mediation (VOM) of adults, the decision to participate in the experience and practical actions taken. I will also make references to the current legal situation regarding the possibility of applying or not the criterion of opportunity by the prosecutor, and the future possibilities regarding VOM including advantages and disadvantages.
