The pluralism of the sources of law together with the attribution of modern Constitutions to multiply values and points of view seems to undermine the principle of legality in criminal law matter. Also in this one other kind of legality can be found besides the legality to be found in general statutory rules: the constitutional legality stemming from the Constitutional Court’s judgments, the legality coming from ordinary courts’ and Supreme Court’s decisions, the conventional legality of the European Courts. Therefore various subjects become sources of the rules beyond the statutory ones, which, according to the Illuministic tradition, were the sole sources of the laws.
