What is the role of the Procurators in oral judicial acts in Spanish Courts?

The truth is that their on-site functions are not relevant since, unlike the lawyer, they cannot intervene in the courtroom. For this reason, many Procurators request at the act to the Judge that they be allowed to leave the room once the act has begun in order to dedicate themselves to professional tasks that really require their physical presence.

If they remain in the room, they can provide logistical support to the lawyer (prior instructions to the lawyer about where to sit, about the language in which the Judge or the representative of the public prosecutor's office is expressed, distribution of documents among the attendees, specifical procedural instructions and particularities of the Court to the lawyer, etc).

We have to take into consideration that on the criminal, social and contentious-administrative jurisdictional orders the intervention of these professionals is limited.
