Criminalization, Right to Oblivion and Statute of limitation

What should we usually expect from penal justice other than it should
impose penalties on the authors of proven offences ? Rules have profoundly
changed since the middle of the twentieth century. First, the
conditions of limitations of public action have become more restrictive
and crimes against humanity have been declared imprescriptible.
Second, in the wake of the ordinance of 2 February 1945 regarding
underage offenders, magistrates may, in certain circumstances, reject
criminalization for adults even though the offences they are accused of
are proven. Finally, political authorities, being committed to oblivion,
forgiveness and reconciliation, have extensively resorted to amnesty
and pardon.
