|Spanish term or phrase: "homicidio por omision impropia en calidad de garante"|
|Spanish (Mexico) legal text.|
context: "el 11 de noviembre de 2008, el juez penal dictó auto de formal prisión al senor X por su probable responsabilidadd en la comisión de los delitos de homicidio por omisión impropá en calidad de garante"
5 hrs confidence: peer agreement (net): +1 9 hrs confidence:
homicide by accessory during the fact based on capacity (as public official)
The term "cómplice por omisión" translates as "accessory during the fact."
The chief of state police acted as an accessory by way of his inaction in the face of the crimes committed by his subordinates.
The clasification of the homicide (first degree murder, second degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, negligent homicide, etc, etc) is another story and it depends on the way in which the crimes were committed and the elements to be proven in court, which is not at play in this context.
“Callar nos puede convertir en cómplices por omisión"
"Problemático resulta, responder si es posible la participación en delitos de
comisión por omisión, ya que su respuesta se deriva, no solo del modelo del
estado, en que nos encontremos, sino de la forma de ver la configuración de
Una posible solución, parte de la base, según la cual para cometer una
omisión se necesita un deber especial o posición de garante, no prevista
para los delitos de acción, y por tanto la comprensión del delito se da de
forma atomizada, -una comprensión para los delitos de acción y otra para los
de omisión- teniendo esto claras repercusiones, en la teoría de la
participación, como lo veremos a continuación."

Paraguayan judicial officials announced their intention of bringing charges of "negligent homicide" (homicidio por omisión) against the former president stemming from the deaths of the demonstrators. However, the newly appointed Interior Minister rejected a senior state prosecutor's request for the arrest of Cubas, on the grounds that he "cannot be arrested unless his immunity is revoked by the Senate". On Monday 29 March, Raúl Cubas fled to Brazil where he was granted political asylum. Senate leader Luis González Macchi was sworn in as head of state on Sunday as constitutional successor to Cubas.

A company may in many ways can be likened to a human body. They have a brain and a nerve [center] which controls what they do. They also have hands which hold the tools and act in accordance with directions from the [Center]. Some of the people in the Company are mere servants and agents who are nothing more than hands to do the work and cannot be said to represent the mind or will. Others are Directors and Managers who represent the directing mind and will of the company, they control what they do. The state of mind of these Managers is the state of mind of the Company and is treated by the law as such.
