Forum echo – criminal age: “Krone” readers demand consequences


The era of criminal liability is currently a polarizing topic – both in politics and among the readers of “Krone”. In Austria, young people aged 14 and over are currently criminally liable, but voices within the government are calling for this age to be lowered. Our users also have many, sometimes very different, opinions about this discussion.
