Baudžiamosios jurisdikcijos taikymo Lietuvos Respublikos piliečiams, kurie pagal nacionalinius įstatymus naudojasi imunitetu, problemos.
Recent events once again proved that the restrictions of the criminal jurisdiction, determinated by the Constitution of the Republic of Lithuania and other laws, are acute and give rise to many discussions about the citizens of Lithuania, who occupy certain positions or strive to achieve them. The discussions arise due to both the expedience of immunity guaranteed by respective laws for above mentioned persons and the meaning of immunity for the implementation of the state criminal jurisdiction. The inviolability of the president is a tradition which has lasted for centuries. Therefore, it is comprehensive and unquestionable to all that immunity for those persons must be secured and has to be ensured by the laws of many states. In this problem the discussion is raised only due to the term of immunity and the possibility to annulate it. Whereas one could say, that the immunity of parliament’s members, judges and persons, who are running for particular high state positions, from criminal jurisdiction is a quiet new and painful issue, especially when confronted with the problem of applying immunity as a protection from criminal responsibility. The author focuses on problematic rules of respective legal acts and the possibilities for improving the current situation during the elaboration of this problem.
