The article deals with private audio and video recording used as evidence in criminal, civil and administrative procedures. The author argues in favor of the possibility to use the evidence notwithstanding it has been made according to the law on protection of privacy. The issue whether the camera installed on the house has been allowed by the respective authority is the issue for procedure before that authority, which might impose penalty on the person managing the house. The recording made thereof shall, however, be used in respective procedures without any limits.
