ÍtemImproper management crime in Colombia. A corporate perspective(Universidad EAFIT, 2021-12-17) Pantoja Ruíz, Juan Pablo; Pontificia Universidad JaverianaThe offence of disloyal administration, established by Article 250B of the Colombian Penal Code, was created as an instrument to combat corruption in the private sector. The Colombian legislator was inspired by the Spanish legal system to criminalize the act of the administrator who, abusing his or her functions, disposes of company assets or incurs contractual commitments at the company's expense, causing an economically assessable damage. However, to understand when the administrator acts outside his functions and abuses them requires a closer look at company law, which originally regulates the duties of administrators. This paper studies this relationship between criminal law and corporate law to seek to give content to the crime of unfair administration under the theory of the fiduciary duties of the administrator in Colombia. After this, he studies the particularities of the type of unfair administration, pointing out that its wording could be improved, since the promoters of companies in formation were not included, the damage should be predicated on the company and not on its partners, and any administrator who acts for a benefit other than that of the company also abuses the functions of his or her position. Finally, some general conclusions are presented.

Finally, the crime of abortion is analyzed under these principles, and it is concluded that this crime is unconstitutional because it doesn’t pass the proportionality test.
