Prawidłowość trybu ścigania przestępstwa zgwałcenia w kontekście gwarancji konstytucyjnych
Propriety of Prosecution of Rape in the Context of Constitutional Guarantees
Languages of publication
The paper sets out to discuss the amendment to the penal code dated 13 June 2013 against the backdrop of constitutional guarantees. The amendment has changed the prosecution procedure of the statutory offence of rape by no longer treating institution of the relevant criminal proceedings as contingent upon the victim filing an official complaint. This study concerns the issue of a clash between the common good (common sexual liberty) and individual interests of the victim (personal liberty and right to privacy). The author conducts an assessment of the new regulations in the context of the constitutional principle of proportionality.
