In evidence

The crime of embezzlement committed through the misappropriation of computer files.

The Court of Cassation, through the sentence no. 11959/2020, clarified that the files stored on electronic devices or servers have a physical dimension that allows their possession and fall within the definition of “mobile thing”. Therefore, those who appropriate it in the context of the employment relationship commit the crime of embezzlement. Follows analysis of the Criminal & Compliance lawyers of Tonucci & Partners.
