No, of course not. We need publication of fines, sufficient jail time – it must become easier to send people to jail.
What’s more, in Germany, fines normally only go to individuals, not to the companies, because there is no criminal law for companies, criminals can only be individuals; that’s a big problem that has to be tackled, we only have administrative fines for businesses.
