“The fine is a penalty prescribed in the felony, misdemeanor, and offense. It is one of the original penalties. It is not a penalty of subordination at all, and in limited cases that may be supplementary, which obligates the convicted person to pay to the government treasury the amount estimated in the judgment.”

(2) It shall not be imposed except by a criminal judgment and shall be claimed by the Public Prosecution.

He pointed out that there is a distinction between the ordinary fine and the relative fine. If the accused in a single crime in the crime committed for the relative penalty, whether active or partners, only “one fine” is imposed on all of them.

All the contributors to the crime are obliged to pay the single fine. The State wants to ensure that all the accused receive a fine equal to the value of the embezzlement, for example, or the value of the bribe. Solidarity is not intended as a penalty, but only the realization of the state’s interest in facilitating the collection of the fine in favor of the public treasury. Exempting the shareholders from solidarity in the payment of the fine, in which case one of them shall be sentenced by a certain amount, provided that the sum of the total shall equal the sum of the fine.

As for the ordinary fine, the number of the number of accused and no solidarity among them any personal fine and sentenced to a fine on each of them to be alone.

If the judgment is canceled, the fine shall be refunded against the person who commits the fine:

The fine as an original penalty is not carried out except on a judgment and is not committed by others. It is purely personal and does not apply to the heirs as persons in their personal financial situation.
