Svoboda, Petr ; Jelínek, Jiří (advisor) ; Vanduchová, Marie (referee)
1 Limits of Legal Obligation of Attorney`s Confidentiality in Criminal Proceedings Abstract The legal obligation of attorney's confidentiality imposed by the law is currently not only mentioned in professional discussions. However, the increased attention paid to this institute does not support it. There is a growing belief that it is being misused for the benefit of an attorney or for concealing criminal and other delict activity, resulting in increased pressure from the state to violate confidentiality obligations. This manifests itself in systematic or individual attempts to break it, or it leads to refusal of protection of the confidential relationship between an attorney and his client, which is a prerequisite for providing legal assistance. The thesis describes in detail the meaning and purpose of the institute of attorney's duty of confidentiality and its position in the legal order. Its attention is focused especially on the area of the criminal law in which it is most threatened and therefore the application and protection of this institute in criminal proceedings is analyzed in detail. In order that the meaning of the above-mentioned provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure can be concisely clarified, this is done in the thesis primarily from the practical point of view. For this purpose, the...

Criminal liability of legal entities In the presented thesis the author deals with the topic of criminal liability of legal entities.

Unconditional imprisonment
Šťastný, Michal ; Tejnská, Katarína (advisor) ; Jelínek, Jiří (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the aspects of unconditional imprisonment. Unconditional imprisonment, as a term of criminal law, is the most severe punishment used in the Czech Republic, it is also a universal punishment that can be imposed for any crime. Imprisonment is executed in a prison with security, in a maximum-security prison, or in a special unit of remand prison. The rights and obligations of convicts are governed, in particular, by the Act on Imprisonment and Imprisonment Rules. Various educational programs and leisure activities, as well as the employment of the convicts, are carried out during the execution of the imprisonment. The institute of conditional release is an important instrument for the reduction of the prison population, yet it is underused. The prison problems are especially a high number of prisoners, overcrowded prisons, low financial literacy and high indebtedness of convicts, substance abuse problems, cumulative prison sentences and prisoners' pay-to-stay fees. The number of convicts per 100,000 citizens and recidivism rate are used to assess the effectiveness of unconditional imprisonment. The Czech Republic is one of the countries with a very high number of prisoners in Europe, as well as a high recidivism rate. Decreasing of these two factors can be achieved by...
Criminal liability of legal entities - comparison of legal regulations in the Czech Republic and Poland
Sýkora, Petr ; Jelínek, Jiří (advisor) ; Heranová, Simona (referee)
Criminal liability of legal entities - comparison of legal regulations in the Czech Republic and Poland Abstract The criminal liability of legal entities still raises emotions and is still the subject of both expert discussions and lay comments. Moreover, the application of the Law on the criminal liability of legal entities in practice is still problematic and law enforcement bodies are not only unsure how to apply individual institutes and when to consider bringing charges against a legal entity but often still do not initiate proceedings against legal persons because they consider such course of action a complication in proceedings against an individual. Thus, the greatest application problems relate firstly to assessing whether the legal conditions for initiating criminal proceedings against a legal entity are met, and then the question of the so-called exculpation and the problem of the possible transfer of the evidence obligation to a legal entity. Last but not least, from the point of view of the application practice, the limitation of the legal entity's right to choose a legal representative. Despite the fact, how critically it is possible to look at the regulation of criminal liability of legal entities, it cannot be overlooked, that one of the closest neighbors, Poland, has even greater problems...
