Specificul instruirii și particularitățile activității bibliotecii școlii de miliție a MAI URSS din Chișinău (anii 1940-1965)
The specific training and particularities of the activity of the library of the school of militia of the MIA of the USSR in Chisinau (years 1940-1965)

Simion CARP, Elena CARP

The authors proposed to investigate in the present article the specifics of professional training at the militia school in the city of Chisinau during the years 1940-1965, the peculiarities of the activity of the library of this educational institution and the impact of the study process specific to this school on the consciousness of the graduates. Thus, it is found that the militia school needed ideological literature, edited at the command of the communist totalitarian regime. The literature was censored and sent centrally by the hierarchically superior structures, responsible for the education system, to the subordinate institutions. According to the authors, the ideological education of the students in this institution was a priority task of the teaching staff. At the same time, during their studies, the students participated in cultural-artistic and ideological events according to the programs coordinated with the Soviet authorities in Moscow. The aim was to educate the loyalty of the young staff and train employees to fight to annihilate any kind of anti-Soviet resistance shown by the Bessarabians. During the theoretical and practical classes, the lecturers aimed to convince the students that the terror and abuses committed by the Soviet repressive organs against the local people were legal.
Keywords: Militia school, Moldavian SSR, library activity, ideological education, censorship.

Simplified procedure for finding and examination of contraventions – theoretical-practical aspects and application problems
Procedura simplificată de constatare şi examinare a contravenţiilor – aspecte teoretico-practice şi probleme de aplicare

Ianuș ERHAN,Stanislav REABOI

In order for the contraventional law to take effect, it is necessary to hold accountable the person who is guilty of committing the contravention, and actually, the detection and examination of the contravention or contraventions committed by a certain person is done within the contravention process.
The contravention process in the simplified procedure consists of the same phases as the classic process, only with the difference that they are carried out/passed much faster due to certain distinct conditions and particularities, and the period from the reporting/finding of the illegal act to the completion of the contravention process it is very short.
Here, the legislator determines different procedural documents, first of all, the minutes regarding the contravention by which the illegal act is individualized, the perpetrator is identified and a solution is adopted for each case.
Another procedural act is the decision by which the flagrant contravention is examined, i.e. the contravention discovered at the time of its commission. In the same way, the decision resolves the offense examined based on the personal findings of the investigating agent. Regarding the contraventions found at the state border crossing points, if the person in respect of whom the contravention process was started recognizes the contravention committed and accepts the sanction in the form of a fine established by the ascertaining agent, he would draw up another procedural act, namely fine receipt.
We can say that the mechanism for examining contraventions in the simplified procedure is a viable one that has demonstrated its efficiency and usefulness for all parties involved in the contravention process. At the same time, in practice there are certain deficiencies in the application of the given procedure, for which reasons the revision and adjustment of the provisions that determine this procedure are required.
Keywords: contravention, contravention process, minutes regarding the contravention, flagrant contravention, contravention penalty, simplified procedure.

Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop new approaches to prevent this phenomenon. In the process of describing the concepts of terrorism, this article discusses a model for the early detection of terrorist campaigns, long- and medium-term premises (root and immediate causes), as well as short-term indicators, in order to identify the underlying structures that contribute to the implementation of terrorist campaigns.

Life imprisonment of children, comparative criminal law analysis
Detențiunea pe viață a copiilor, aspecte de drept penal comparat


Life imprisonment is a custodial sentence that allows the state to keep the person in its custody for the entire life. The punishment of life imprisonment is of particular importance, as it is often the most severe criminal sanction in countries where the death penalty was abolished. From both a human rights and prison management perspective, life imprisonment raises concerns.

In many legal systems there is an absolute prohibition on all life sentences for children, while 73 States around the world allowed people to be sentenced to life imprisonment for offences committed while under the age of eighteen.

This article focuses on children younger than eighteen years convicted of crimes (as if the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child defines the notion of a child) and presents a comparative criminal law analysis of the regulation and enforcement of life imprisonment on children around the world. It also highlights the way that international, regional and national human rights mechanisms have addressed life imprisonment of children over the years.

One of the main conclusions of this analysis is that life imprisonment, of any type, does not have a place in juvenile justice. Imposing such a punishment on a child contradicts our modern understanding that children have enormous potential for growth and maturity as they move from youth to adulthood, and the widely held belief in the possibility of a child’s rehabilitation and redemption.
Keywords: children, rights, sentence, punishment, life imprisonment, life imprisonment without parole.

Punerea pe rol a cauzei penale: soluționarea cererilor parvenite de la faza de urmărire penală


At all stages of the criminal proceedings, the court has the role of a leader at each stage. Therefore, the court has the obligation to create equal conditions for all parties and participants for a full and multilateral investigation of the case before it.

Thus, the trial of the case at first instance is divided into the following procedural stages: the opening of the criminal case – which also includes the pre-trial hearing – the judicial inquiry, the judicial debates, the defendant’s last word, the deliberation and the adoption of the sentence. All these compartments comprise common but also distinct procedural activities which are required by the special procedural provisions.

The trial of the criminal case, as a distinct phase of the criminal process, is a specific activity and occupies a central place in the process of achieving criminal justice [6, p. 523]. The above does not diminish the criminal prosecution phase, the judicial control of the pre-trial procedure or the enforcement phase.

Keywords: criminal case, preliminary hearing, activity of the judge, protocol conclusions, list of evidence, adversarial proceedings, publicity, applications and requests.
