Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Throughout the present work, we will delve into the relation between the crimes of homicide at victim request, foreseen and punished in article 134º of the Penal Code, and the crime of incitement or aid to suicide, foreseen and punished in article 135º of the same Code. This study will seek to analyze each legal type of crime, the relation between them and an analysis of article 135º/2 of the CP, which predicts an aggravation of the crime of inciting or aiding suicide of minors under 16 and, for which we will dedicate ourselves here, an aggravation in relation to victims with significantly reduced assessment or decision-making capacities. In the analysis we will highlight the most critical issues that the current legal solution can awaken and the possible solutions to these same issues, based on what is written on this topic in Portuguese doctrine.
