Criminal liability of corporations in selected countries of the European union
Slobodník, Martin ; Jelínek, Jiří (advisor) ; Pelc, Vladimír (referee)
The author of the propounded thesis is dealing with a controversial issue of criminal liability of legal entities in various countries of Central Europe, i.e. the Federal Republic of Germany, the Republic of Austria, the Slovak Republic, the Republic of Poland and attention is dedicated to their comparison with each other or with the relevant legal provisions of the Czech Republic. The criminal liability of legal persons is not perceived by the experts of criminal law as mere complement of the criminal liability of individuals, but as an equal branch of penal responsibility side by side with the liability of natural persons. For this reason, the author deems its closer examination to be beneficial. This work refers to legislative activities in the Czech Republic, but also in the Slovak Republic and the Federal Republic of Germany, which clearly show that the legislation of these countries is constantly evolving and that their legislators are still looking for the optimal embedding of effective sanctioning of legal entities, including the related penal institutes. In the introduction, the author points out the common international and European obligations of particular researched countries and also provides evaluation of the implementation of commitments by member states to the European Union or to...

This thesis deals with selected issues in sanctioning of legal persons. In particular, it focuses on sanctions applicable to legal persons under the act on criminal liability of legal persons. I selected this topic since I am interested in criminal law, especially in criminal liability of legal persons. I decided to focus on sanctioning of legal persons, or more precisely on selected issues thereof, since there are many reasons why this topic is subject of passionate discussions about the act. Based on theoretical and practical findings, this thesis aims to analyze whether the current state of law in the area of sanctioning of legal persons in the act on criminal liability of legal persons is perfect and fully sufficient, or whether it requires amending. The preface introduces the topic of sanctioning of criminal persons and the structure and the main goals of this thesis. Subsequently, the thesis is divided into seven chapters.

Criminal Corporate Liability
Bohuslav, Lukáš ; Jelínek, Jiří (advisor) ; Záhora, Jozef (referee) ; Sváček, Jan (referee)
The Criminal Corporate Liability The definition of legal person is not outlined in criminal law, but can be found in Section 18, Subsection 2 of the Civil Code. Corporate criminal liability is then a concept that has been newly introduced to the Czech statutory criminal law, what has caused a certain intrusion of the system of basic principles of criminal law, mainly the principle of individual criminal responsibility. The term "imputability" appears, which means that a conduct of agents or other persons designated in the Act on Criminal Liability of Legal Persons and Proceedings Against Them (further as "the Act") can be imputed to a legal person, if the physical person is culpable for the conduct and the conduct causes imputability of the criminal offence to the legal person. Intensive discussions on necessity and suitability of implementation of the concept of corporate criminal liability into the Czech legal system had preceded the adoption of the Act in 2011. Such discussion can now be considered as overcome, as it is obvious that the Czech Republic has opted for the direction towards the "true" corporate criminal liability. Arguments for and against the adoption of the Act can nevertheless help to better understand the concept itself, as well as the context in which it has been introduced. It...

Mišianik, Peter ; Gřivna, Tomáš (advisor) ; Herczeg, Jiří (referee)
1 Resumé The purpose of my thesis is to analyze the concept of economic crime in its whole size. The reason why I chose this topic is its international danger and high damage caused by this kind of crime. This subject is discussed in international organizations and is focused in its documents, because only international co-operation is able to fight with such crime. The thesis is composed of two parts (four chapters) - general and special. The first part (first and second chapter) is dealing with theoretical issues. The goal of this part is to introduce and define basic terminology found in the thesis like economic crime or financial crime. It is as well dealing with basic criminological characteristics of economic crime like the phenomenology, specifics of offenders, etiology or control mechanism and prevention of economic crime. The second part (third and fourth chapter) describes money laundering as a distinctive example of economic crime and the criminal liability of corporations as an instrument for fighting with economic crime. Describing the theoretical process of money laundering and focusing on legislative statute No. 253/2008, where the proper legislation is found, is the basis of chapter three. Chapter four is composed of three subchapters, where is described the term criminal liability of...
