Abstract
In the countries from central Europe we can find corruption not only on high level but also in low level called "less serious corruption". However, this corruption is spread in all parts of the society. It causes that almost all citizens of these regions have already had experiences with concrete and not official, but essential payments in diverse fields, for instances: in health services, educational system etc. Next problem is that the fight against corruption is very difficult because many employees of police, justice and plaintiff who would have to take the responsibility of corruption are often people who are the most influenced by it. Considering the weight of this circumstances we can say about necessity of restructualization in the state for the purpose of more effective fight against the corruption.

Keywords

    14. It is necessary to note that the very essence of criminal liability of legal entities is to a large extent at odds with the principles of the continental model of criminal law, namely with the existent strictly individual nature of criminal liability or, as the case may be, the perception of said liability as the liability of a natural person. On the other hand, current development trends speaking in favour of the introduction of criminal liability of natural persons are doubtlessly connected with new social, economic and political changes.

The Act stipulates also the conditions for the punishment of legal successors of a legal entity, and it is laid down that in such a case it is necessary to consider primarily the extent to which the assets corresponding to the benefit have been transferred to any of the successors, secondarily other benefits from the crime committed and subsidiarily also the extent to which any of the successors resumes the activities in connection with which the crime has been committed.
