thats the way it should be

i did a quick search on the topic and found this:

in criminal law you have the principle "in dubio pro reo", where the
prosecutor has to prove that the defendant is guilty

in civil law (like copyright cases), its different
both parties have to bring evidence (Beibringungsgrundsatz) and
the court has to decide about the evidence

in italy you have to retain the receipt "scontrino fiscale" when you
leave a restaurant or a store. a special police "guardia di finanza"
that belongs to the ministry of finance can control those nearby
(background was that stores and restaurants didn't pay taxes)
