Implementation of new Criminal Procedure Law continues in Cuba

Havana, Nov 1 (Prensa Latina) Cuba continues implementing Law 143 of the Criminal Procedure with the introduction of new penal institutions such as the criterion of opportunity, the prohibition of approaching the victim and the sentence of conformity.

The criteria of opportunity, one of the institutions included in the Law, provides the Prosecutor’s Office powers to decide to refrain from carrying out criminal action.

The opportunity criteria are applied when the crime was committed recklessly or in cases where it is intentional; its sanctioning framework does not exceed five years of deprivation of liberty.

The prohibition of approaching the victim, their relatives and family by the accused for the possible commission of a crime, is another precautionary measure included in the provision.

To compensate the victims, the Law also established precautionary measures such as the prohibition of alienating property and the bail, seizure or preventive deposit of property.
