Jurisprudence

The Supreme Court defines private detectives as privileged witnesses or with documents, and adds in different sentences that it is "an instrument endowed with exclusivity for the effective control of the duties required of the worker." "The testimony issued by private detectives has in favor of its veracity, in addition, in an undeniable way, it provides the precise and continuous dedication to the object of the subsequent testimony to be issued and the complementary graphic or sound accreditations that may be accompanied". (STS 6-11-90).
