“The application of the principle of proportionality in criminal rulings: sentencing and legal remedies issues”.
Although the concept of proportionality has been raised in several Ancient Greek philosophical texts, the principle of proportionality has been evolved in the second half of the 20th century by the rulings of the German Constitutional Court. Today, this principle is accepted by the rulings of European Court of Human Rights and of European Union Court. In Greece, the judgment that influenced the adoption of the principle of proportionality in the legal system, was taken by the Council of State in 1984 (2112/1984). The introduction of the principle of proportionality in criminal rulings took place in 1979 when the Council of Appellate Judges of Piraeus accepted the opinion of the Prosecutor K. Stamatis (67/1979). Today, the principle of proportionality is considered fundamental constitutional principle in Greece and is recognized as basic pillar of the rule of Law. The constitutionally consolidated principle of proportionality has been reaffirmed by judgments taken by numerous courts at all levels of jurisdiction. Most importantly, the principle of proportionality is now a basic component of the criminal law with application in sentencing and legal remedies and it has been reaffirmed by the judgments of the Supreme Court (Areios Pagos).
