Abstract: Criminal law is one of the most important branches of the legal system. Its role and importance are unquestionable, in the context in which the purpose of criminal law is to defend society and its members. Criminal law, also known as the "guard dog of society", is regarded as a "ultima ratio", when the other branches of law prove to be powerless in defense of the most important social values. Criminal law has a millennial existence, being the pure proof of people's willingness to defend themselves even against the facts of their fellow men. Thus, criminal law is not a novelty of the contemporary world, a discovery of modernity, but it is as old as people's feelings of security and self-preservation. It has evolved beautifully, sinuously and has always expressed the relationship of man with the value system. Certainly, a rapid emancipation of the current legal and criminal rules and regulations will be witnessed in the future, out of humanity's simple desire to live safely, peacefully and in harmony.
