Dealing with administrative offences with a reduced level of social harm

Jurisprudence 4/2021 Section: Articles Page: 26-33

Keywords: admonition, social harmfulness, administrative punishment

Abstract: In this article, the authors focused on the practical application of general institutes that can be applied in the administrative offence proceedings when social harmfulness of the administrative offence is significantly reduced (even to a slight degree) due to the circumstances of the case. The article first briefly defines the nature of those institutes and then tries to analyse the administrative practice and formulate conclusions based on this analysis. The authors examined the administrative practice both from a more general perspective (based on the analysis of statistical materials) and from a specific perspective (based on the analysis of a sample of administrative decisions).
