Fraudulent Currency Emission in Romanian Law


  • Ion Rusu


In this paper we analyzed the offence that is mentioned with a marginal title, taking into
consideration the provisions in force at this time. We considered elements of identity, as well as of
differentiation in relation to previous laws, constitutive content, forms, modalities and some aspects
concerning legal precedents and transitory situations. Novelty elements concern both the analysis
itself in relation to recent doctrine, as well as recent and relevant case law. Critical analysis of the
incrimination text has imposed also critical opinions, supplemented by corresponding de lege ferenda
proposals. The paper may be useful both for students of law schools as well as for practitioners in the
field of criminal law. This paper is part of a university course to be published at the Universul Juridic
publishing house this year.
