Tom Vander Beken and Annelies Balcaen, Uitvoering van strafrechtelijke veroordelingen (boeten, voordeelontnemingen en vrijheidsstraffen): stroomschema, Lawforce working paper 2008/1

The criminal law reaction to breaches of environmental law mostly consists of imposing a fine. In some cases however, the judge pronounces a prison sentence or a forfeiture of illegal benefits.

To this end, an analysis is made of existing legislation, literature and existing data (scientific research and interviews).
