New criminal law. achievements and some controversies

George Antoniu


The new Criminal Code (Law no. 286/2009) adopted by the Government through an accountability statement was designed as a legislative act superior to the Criminal Code in force designed to better suit current preventive and repressive needs. It remains to be seen whether the reality confirms these expectations. Following we will consider some of the provisions of the new Criminal Code, i.e. the General Part (A) and the Special Part (B) and of the New Code of Criminal Procedure to check if the expectations which we have referred to, are confirmed and to what extent.
