The purpose of this article is to make an attempt to show the relation, impact and “extension” of the antic Roman criminal law in today’s criminal (both substantive and procedural) laws in Macedonia. One of the purposes is to show that the Roman law is not just a legal history, but it still represents a solid ground on which modern laws are created as well as that this legal system still has a dominate influence over the creation of todays legislative. Bearing in mind the specificity of the issue that we’ll elaborate in this paper as well as the fact that we research a legal system that formally does not exit, the basic method of our research we’ll be the historical method. Also for the purpose of this paper, we will use the legal, sociological, comparative and dialectic method. The final conclusion to which we came is that there is undoubtedly huge influence in our legal system in a way that the basic principles from roman criminal law have shown themselves as eternal and are integrated in Macedonian criminal laws and in the criminal theory. Keywords: Roman law, criminal law, criminal procedure, Macedonia, principles.
