MALDONADO FUENTES, Francisco. ¿Se puede justificar la aplicación copulativa de penas y medidas de seguridad?: Estado actual de las posiciones doctrinales que buscan dicho objetivo. Polít. crim. [online]. 2011, vol.6, n.12, pp.387-447. ISSN 0718-3399. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-33992011000200005.
The article seeks to review the justifying arguments proposed for legitimizing the copulative application of sentences and security measures on individuals deemed guilty of a criminal offense and that furthermore have been qualified as dangerous. For this, tendencies are addressed that understand that the mere fact that penal models of continental influence are structured in a dualist manner offers sufficient justification to impose a sentence and a measure; as well as the approach by those who understand that for this an external reason is required (based on variants in the general interest of crime prevention) and, finally, that of those who propose the need to attribute said dangerousness to the individual.
Keywords : Safety measures; dualism; dangerous suspects subject to prosecution; dangerousness.
