Abstract: Presento una nueva categoría de normas penales que llamo "delitos instrumentales". Es una anticipación a través de la cual el legislador español castiga la preparación de un delito que incrimina objetos o procesos para cometer un delito con el fin de prevenir nuevas formas de delito. Sin embargo, esta decisión es ilegítima porque es incompatible con los principios constitucionales. En ese sentido, para mantener estas normas penales en el código se requerirá una interpretación que se ajuste a los principios básicos del derecho penal.
This paper presents a new category of criminal norms that are referred to as “instrumental crimes”. It is a from of anticipation through which the Spanish legislator punishes the preparation of crime incriminating evidence or processes to commit a crime in order to prevent new forms of crime. However, this decision is illegitimate because it is incompatible with constitutional principles. In that sense, maintaining those criminal norms in the code will require interpretation that conforms to the basic principles of criminal law.
