The Principle of Justice and Realisation of Criminal Liability
Administratīvā un Kriminālā Justīcija 2014 Vol. 1(66)
Within a harmonious system of legal principles, principles of criminal liability form a constituent part determining a specific line of criminal law. The way itself in which these principles are termed already indicates that they are attributed to a certain area of law, i.e. criminal law. These principles comprise the fundamental provisions of criminal law, upon which, as a rule, other most important institutes of this area of law are founded. Principles of criminal liability ensure the internal consistency and agreement (non-contradiction) among the norms pertaining to the area of law at issue.
