Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Discusses in detail the law of the 11th of July 2018 reforming the criminal responsibility of legal persons. It changes the rules concerning the possibility to prosecute also the other persons in the sense that it abolishes any conditions. Further it expands the possibility of responsibility of publi persons. However there is still a lack of effective punishment. It can be questioned if this reform is on this point not mere symbolic.
This article then further discusses the possibilities or not of this law for the enviromental criminal law.
