Summary/Abstract: Compulsory psychiatric treatment and confinement in a medical institution is one of the security measures that may be ordered for the offender in the criminal procedure and it is also the only criminal sanction of indefinite length. After the sentence is pronounced the execution of the measure follows. The execution of criminal sanctions is regulated by the Law on Execution of Criminal Sanctions, which remains vague in regard to this measure. The authors of this work attempt to find an answer to the seemingly simple but in fact very complicated question: where is this measure to be executed?
