La prescrizione nel sistema penal-processualistico degli Stati baltici: il caso paradigmatico della Lettonia nella comparazione con le esperienze di Lituania ed Estonia

  • Mauro Mazza

Abstract

In the legal system of Latvia, the rules on criminal prescription are included in the material law, not in the criminal procedural rules. The main characteristics of prescription in Latvian law, also relevant from a comparative point of view, are represented on the one hand by its derivation from the principle of criminal legality, on the other hand by the articulated legislation on the interruption of the prescription, and on the other hand again by the lack a discipline of the suspension of the prescription. These same characteristics are contemplated in the legal systems of Lithuania and Estonia, with the main difference that the latter two systems also include the institution of the suspension of the prescription.
