Abstract:

This article focuses on the issues of corruption prevention overview, institutional framework, preventive measures and development of criminal justice in the light of corruption prevention.
One can said, that the preventive measures, it seems to be, are under the nature of complexity, but one of the most effective ways to tackle corruption roots and preconditions is severe criminal policy.
The authors do not want to emphasize, that the severity of laws is the cure from corruption as such.
It has to be stated, that the severity should be considered as flexible and dynamic reaction to the social relations, which are sometimes poisoned of „the misuse of public office for private gain”.
