CRITICAL REVIEW OF THE SECURITY MEASURE OF THE RESTRAINT TO APPROACH AND COMMUNICATE WITH THE INJURED PARTY UNDER ARTICLE 89a OF THE CRIMINAL CODE OF SERBIA

Emir Ćorović, Aladin Šemović

Abstract


In this paper, the authors analyze the security measure involving the restraint to approach and communicate with the injured party under Article 89a of the Criminal Code of Serbia, which was introduced by legislative changes and amendments in 2009. Although this criminal sanction has been part of the domestic criminal legislation for seven years, there are serious legislative deficiencies associated with its regulation. Namely, the positive criminal law of the Republic of Serbia does not regulate the consequences of the act if the convicted offender violates this restraint, nor does it envisage the rules for the execution of this security measure. This can cause serious problems in imposing and applying the relevant criminal sanction. The corresponding data show that courts use this measure to a much lesser extent every year. Thus, the authors give suggestions de lege ferenda to remove the existing restraining order from the system of security measures and to envisage it as one of the obligations under a suspended sentence with supervision.
