Guarantor’s obligation in criminal law
Languages of publication
The purpose of this paper is to present the duties of a person obliged to prevent the occurrence of a consequential harm in criminal law. The discussion on criminal liability for consequential crimes committed as a result of a failure to perform a specific legal duty usually focuses only on the broken chain of causation and omission to act, and the sources of the obligation to take an action. The author analyses the content of the warrant’s duties, or, in other words, what a warrant is obliged to do. The limits of the obligation depending on a specific situation which is to be prevented are also discussed, followed by a list of consequences for a failure to perform the duty or improper performance of the duty by a person obliged to prevent criminal consequences.
