Section 86. The limitation period

The limitation period for criminal liability is
  1. a.
    two years when the maximum statutory penalty prescribed is a fine or imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year,
  2. b.
    five years when the maximum statutory penalty prescribed is imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years,
  3. c.
    10 years when the maximum statutory penalty prescribed is imprisonment for a term not exceeding 10 years,
  4. d.
    15 years when the maximum statutory penalty prescribed is imprisonment for a term not exceeding 15 years,
  5. e.
    25 years when the maximum statutory penalty prescribed is imprisonment for a term not exceeding 21 years.
When calculating the limitation period it is irrelevant that another penalty may be imposed in addition to fines or imprisonment.
If a person has by the same act committed several offences which would have different limitation periods pursuant to the first paragraph, the longest limitation period applies to all the offences.
