Precedented judicial decision

District Court in Cracow has recognised a multimillion sentence from USA, concerning embezzlement commited by ex-CEO of Krakow Businnes Park, who was simultaneously a majority shareholder of this company. Compensation awarded by the Court for shareholder of a company is approximately 276 million dollars. The businessman himself filed a motion for a reduction of this amount – to 92 million dollars. However Polish Court went even further and decreased the compensation to 46 million dollars. As a justification Court used thesis that amends should compensate a damage, and it is not a punishment for a perpetrator.
