New public management and corporate crimes: The case of the prosecutor office of Turin

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


This paper deals with health and safety crimes, proposing a reflection about the selectivity of the process of criminalization at the level of the penal proceeding. The paper start from the sentences pronounced by the Court of Turin in the Eternit and ThyssenKrupp cases to stress the relationship between criminalization processes and organisational choices of the public prosecutor office. Prosecutor's organisational choices and interpretation on the constitutional constraint on the compulsoriness of the penal action are connected with the penal political goals pursued by the offices. The paper aims to stress the link between the processes of criminalization of health and safety crimes and the local legal culture characterizing the judicial office.
