Cost Estimate of Bill to Reform the “Criminal Regime for Minors” (Law 22,278 and its amendments) and to create the Juvenile Criminal Responsibility System.

May 17, 2019

The estimated annual fiscal cost of the Bill to reform the Juvenile Criminal Regime and create the Juvenile Criminal Responsibility System amounts to AR$766 million.

In accordance with the provisions of the Bill, the implementation of the system will be progressive, so that the estimated cost would not fall entirely on the first year of its entry into force.

Likewise, this additional cost would not be fully financed by the National Budget. Although it is not explicitly stated in the Bill, part of the cost should be financed with resources from provincial Budgets, based on the powers of the jurisdictions.
