Nusikalstamumas Lietuvoje: ką pakeitė teisės reforma?
The following newly re-approved codes came into effect from May 1, 2003: the Criminal Code, the Code of Criminal Procedure and the Penal Code of the Republic of Lithuania. The method of registering and accounting of criminal offences is changed too. Analyzes of crime dynamics covered the period of this changes is methodically wrong. This is predominant opinion of scientific community. The comparison of crime before and after May 1, 2003 is incorrect, they consider, because of great changes of criminalization, penal system, criminal procedure and registration of criminal offences. However the question can be rised otherwise: what is the influence of law reform? How are changes of crime and reaction on it in new judicial environment? Does the law reform caused the changes which were the goals of the reform? The statistical data of criminal justice institutions has been analyzed.
