Unofficial Translation (Courtesy of DeepL) Article 401 Illicit enrichment The public official or servant who, abusing his position, illicitly increases his patrimony with respect to his legitimate income shall be punished with imprisonment of not less than five nor more than ten years; disqualification, as appropriate, according to paragraphs 1, 2 and 8 of Article 36; and, with three hundred and sixty-five to seven hundred and thirty days-fine. If the agent is a public official who has held senior management positions in State entities, agencies or companies, or is subject to the prerogative of impeachment and constitutional accusation, he shall be punished with imprisonment of not less than ten nor more than fifteen years; disqualification, as appropriate, pursuant to paragraphs 1, 2 and 8 of Article 36; and three hundred and sixty-five to seven hundred and thirty days-fine. It is considered that there is an indication of illicit enrichment when the increase in the patrimony or personal economic expenditure of the public official or servant, in consideration of his sworn declaration of assets and income, is notoriously higher than what he could normally have had by virtue of his salaries or emoluments received or the increases in his capital or income for any other lawful cause.
