Legal consequences of a crime vs inheritance
Languages of publication
This paper analyses the mutual relationship of the civil law and the criminal law provisions insofar as they pertain to the institutions of the law of succession that permit disinheritance of a person and adjudication of unworthiness to inherit as a result of a crime committed by that person. An attempt is made to answer the question whether the use of concepts typical of criminal law in civil law legislation has been made on purpose with the intention of referring the interpreter of the Civil Code provisions to the provisions of the Penal Code, or whether their use serves merely as a linguistic tool, imposing no such obligation. The premises for adjudicating unworthiness of an heir and disinheritance of an heir entitled to a legitim are analysed.
