Os acordos sobre sentença e o crime de corrupção
: a (não) admissibilidade no ordenamento jurídico português

  • Mónica Ferreira Rocha (Student)

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Considering the recent legislative proposals regarding corruption, this dissertation shall approach the evolution of the crime of corruption and possible adoption by the legislator of constituent mechanisms of premial law, specifically the institute of sentence agreements, under this legal type of crime. As such, we shall outline the path that has been trodden, based on the consecutive legislative amendments made by the legislator on this matter. We shall pay particular attention to the assumptions forwarded by Figueiredo Dias, which assumptions where once accepted by case-law, and, presently, followed by the legislator in draft law no. 90/XIV. Lastly, we shall reflect critically on the (non) admissibility of the institute of sentence agreements, exposing and exploring arguments and doctrinal views for not accepting them as an assumption.
