Based on two decisions, the article deals with the issue of culpability with a more serious effect – grievous bodily harm, as an element of qualified merits of the crime of robbery. It points out the deliberate form of an attempted criminal offence which is crucial for determining this type of culpability relating to the above mentioned element of the qualified merits with a perpetrator of the crime judged according to § 21, Para. 1, to § 173, Para. 1, Para. 2, Sub-para b), Criminal Code. In the event that the more serious effect was caused by the actions of one of the joint-offenders, the article emphasizes need for an individual assessment of culpability in relation to each offender participating in the offence.
