Abstract

The article verifies the meaning of a scene of crime and the division into territorial and exterritorial conduct when determining the scope of Polish jurisdiction in criminal cases. The deliberations are theoretical and dogmatic in nature. They are based on the proposals put forward in the doctrine of international public law within its broad sense, in particular international criminal law, and take into account Criminal Code regulations in force. The analysis leads to a conclusion that in the current reality, in the face of the development of the world wide web, the tendency to redefine the concept of national borders and their role as a factor limiting the freedom of cross-border activities and the development of supranational societies, there are grounds to challenge the function of a scene of crime as a factor determining the scope of Polish jurisdiction in criminal cases. It is proposed to consider the introduction of additional substantive criteria allowing determination of ius puniendi that Poland should be entitled to regardless of the territory where a given act has been committed.
