Strafverfolgung in Wirtschaftsstrafsachen: Strukturen und by Eberhard Kempf,Klaus Lüderssen,Klaus Volk,et. al.

By Eberhard Kempf,Klaus Lüderssen,Klaus Volk,et. al.

< !doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">

Die Strafrechtler überlassen es nicht der (kritischen) Kriminologie, nach Strukturen und Motiven von Strafgesetzgebung und Strafrechtsanwendung in Wirtschaftsstrafsachen zu suchen. Sie sehen – wofür die traditionelle Interpretation des Rechts eigentlich keine Handhabe bietet –, dass vieles Rätselhafte oder jedenfalls schwer zu Erklärende bei Staatsanwaltschaften und Gerichten im Umgang mit den Beschuldigten seinen Ursprung in unreflektierten Vorverständnissen und institutionellen Dynamiken hat.
Das Hauptbeispiel ist die Flucht in die abstrakten Gefährdungstatbestände. Da sie auf das Merkmal eines eingetretenen Schadens – auch in Gestalt konkreter Gefährdungen – verzichten und die generelle Eignung eines Verhaltens, einen Schaden herbeizuführen, genügen lassen, reduziert sich die Prüfungspflicht der Justiz auf die Frage nach verletzten Pflichten. Sie kann guy mühelos in einem Katalog zusammenstellen, weil es auf Folgenkalkulation nicht ankommt. Diese fordert vielmehr, dass guy bei den Konkretisierungen der Definitionen das Verhältnis von Zuschreibung und Zurechnung klärt.
Die Beiträge setzen sich mit dieser Problematik sowohl grundsätzlich wie im element auseinander, unter besonderer Berücksichtigung von Opfermitverantwortung einerseits, Anlageberatung und exzessiver Risikoübernahme andererseits. Der Band schließt mit der Diskussion über den Vorschlag für ein Unternehmensstrafrecht.

Verdeckte strafprozessuale Ermittlungsmaßnahmen by Thomas A Bode

By Thomas A Bode

Die Heimlichkeit ist kleinster gemeinsamer Nenner und zugleich dogmatischer Problempunkt der verdeckten strafprozessualen Ermittlungsmaßnahmen. Entspricht Heimlichkeit dem Zwang zu selbstbelastenden Aussagen? Warum können rein beobachtende Maßnahmen überhaupt die grundrechtlich geschützten Freiheiten des Einzelnen verkürzen? Sind die Vorschriften der StPO Rechtfertigungen für solche Eingriffe oder hierfür zu unbestimmt und unverhältnismäßig? In welchen Fällen scheitert eine Rechtfertigung an der Missachtung der Menschenwürde? Antworten auf diese Fragen sind nicht nur für eine fundamentale Kritik der verdeckten Maßnahmen und ihrer Regelungen notwendig. Sie sind auch unverzichtbar, um die Vorschriften der verdeckten Maßnahmen in der StPO verstehen und sinnvoll auslegen zu können. Mit einem eigenständigen Ansatz zur Beantwortung der Grundlagenfragen werden anwendungsbezogene Lösungsvorschläge erarbeitet, die auch aktuelle Spezialprobleme wie die Online-Durchsuchung und die Quellen-TKÜ betreffen.
