JUDr. Eva Szabová, interná doktorandka Katedry trestného práva a kriminológie, Právnická fakulta Trnavskej univerzity v Trnave, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The paper tries to identify major insufficiencies of the European Arrest Warrant ensuing from its implementation in practice. Consequently it analyzes in detail these insufficiencies, pointing to their impact on the protection and respect to fundamental human rights of persons who are wanted on the basis of the European Arrest Warrant. The paper is also critical of the European Union as regards the lack of activity in removing the above mentioned insufficiencies, and at the same time tries to propose the most appropriate ways of solution.

JUDr. Kateřina Přepechalová, interní doktorand na katedře trestního práva, Právnická fakulta Univerzity Karlovy, email: email@example.com
A widely discussed topic in the past few years has been the establishment of the European Prosecutor’s Office. It has many proponents as well as many opponents. The latest forum where this issue has been discussed was a conference of the Visegrad Group of Four Countries in the High Tatraslast April. The paper attempts to explain and describe the historical context which prompted considerations about the establishment of this office, its operation, and related problems.

JUDr. Adam Bogula, státní zástupce Obvodní státní zastupitelství pro Prahu 4, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Mgr. Michal Kabelík, Soudce Městského soudu v Brně, email: email@example.com
Public prosecutor Adam Borgula and judge Michal Kabelík discuss the question „Chat we dislike about the others“. Both protagonists engage, in a rather humorous way, in seeking the essence of the problem, and what both Aires can do to improve cooperation.
On Some Problems of Suspension of Criminal Proceedings under § 172 Article 1 a) and c) of Penal Code Following Preliminary Hearing of Indictment, Eventually Review of Indictment or Motion to Punishment
Mgr. Jiří Pavlík, státní zástupce, Okresní státní zastupitelství v Písku, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The paper deals with the selected problems of the suspension of criminal proceedings after the preliminary hearing under Section 188 para 1 letter c) of Penal Code or preliminary review under Section 314c para 1 letter a) of Penal Code in connection with Section 172 para 1 letter a) or c) Penal Code. The paper concludes that such legal regulation is inappropriate.
On Connivance of Crime
Mgr. Dušan Gaľo, interní doktorand na katedře trestního práva, Právnická fakulta Masarykovy univerzity v Brně, email: email@example.com
The paper deals with the issue of connivance of crime in the Czech criminal law. It focuses on both the current state and the historical development and the origin of this crime. The paper provides an insight into the crime from the point of view of legal regulations as well as judicial acts. It also provides thoughts on the impact of legal regulations and judicature on the use of connivance in practice.
Trading in small debts and possibilities of criminal liability
JUDr. Karel Šabata, PhD., Okresní soud v Uherském Hradišti, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Constitutional Court issued a judgement on March 29, 2012. Costs in small claims disputes must be adequate to the subjekt of dispute. The Constitutional Court responded to the situation of a mass purchase of outstanding claims. The Cindiny will lead to a reduction of mass purchases of minor outstanding claims. Some commercial firms purchased expensive claims. They relied on high amounts awarded as compensation costs. The paper also drala with criminal responsibility. It is necessary to deal with fraudulent behavior consisting in concealing partial fulfillment. It is also necessary to deal with tax cuts. It must be determined who was actually the recipient of funds recovered forthe costs.
On Abolishment of High Public Prosecutor’s Offices
JUDr. Vladimír Novák, ředitel odboru trestního řízení Vrchní státní zastupitelství v Praze, email: email@example.com
The paper reacts to a polemics between Pavel Komar and Jan Jakovec published earlier (No. 3/2012), discussing the proposed abolishment of High Public Prosecutor’s Offices. It is widely critical of the contents of the substance of the law on the public prosecution service. It especially warns that the selected way to centralize the system contradicts the proclaimed strengthening of the independence of public prosecutors.
Some Notes on the Decision 12 Ksz 5/2012 of the Supreme Administrative Court from the Angle of What Criminal Notice Is and Who Is Competent to Handle the Case
JUDr. Ilja Khain, státní zástupce, KSZ v Brně-pobočka ve Zlíně, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The paper discusses the decision of the Supreme Administrative Court as a disciplinary court. The accused was a regional public prosecutor who allegedly manipulated with a criminal notice. The paper elaborates on what is and what is not a criminal notice from the point of view of the Criminal Code and the appropriate general instruction released by the Supreme Public Prosecutor’s Office. It also deals with the question of competence to handle a criminal notice which actually belongs to administrative proceedings. In the conclusion, the paper points to the insufficiencies of Law No. 7/2002 on penal proceedings saying that it should be amended, and a two/instance penal proceeding introduced.
