The State Public Prosecution clarified, through a film material that it published today on its accounts on social media, the difference between the expiry of the criminal case and the forfeiture of the penalty in terms of the periods in the criminal case.
The Public Prosecution indicated that according to the Code of Criminal Procedure, the expiry of the criminal case means that a certain period has passed since the occurrence of the crime without the competent authority taking any action that leads to the initiation of the criminal case against the accused.
1- In felonies after 20 years.
2- In a misdemeanour, after 5 years.
3- Violations after one year has passed.
From the day the crime occurred.
As for the forfeiture of the penalty, it means the passage of a certain period of time since the issuance of a final judgment of the penalty without its execution on the convict, which leads to the expiration of the right to carry out the penalty before him.
1- In felonies after 30 years.
2- In a misdemeanour, after 7 years.
3- Violations after two years have passed.
The period starts from the date of the judgment becoming final, unless the penalty was ruled in absentia by the criminal court for a felony, then the period starts from the day the judgment was issued.
The dissemination of this information comes within the framework of the State Public Prosecution’s ongoing campaign to enhance the legal culture among members of society, and raise the level of public awareness of the law, with the aim of spreading the culture of law as a way of life.
