Companies to be punished, too

Cabinet has approved a convention that will let the state hold corporate entities criminally responsible for illegal actions, the Sme daily wrote on August 2.

Former justice minister Daniel Lipšic previously suggested sanctions for companies, but his attempts to push forward the corresponding legislation in the parliament failed.

Current Justice Minister Štefan Harabin said criminal responsibility for corporate entities must be enacted in law, but he does not know how.
