The problematic theoretical and legally unresolved issues of the procedural status of the witness are considered. Analysis of the norms of the Criminal Procedure Code of the Russian Federation related to the procedural status of a witness in criminal proceedings indicates the gaps in the law. The concepts of “prohibition” on questioning a person as a witness and “witness immunity” are analyzed. Proposals have been made to clarify the list of persons included in these groups, as well as to coordinate the addition of various norms of the CPC regulating the same legal relations. In conclusion, the author states that the procedural status of the witness needs further scientific research and refinement.
