Taking a decision about a compassionate penal policy or the other way in the case of political criminal is one of the most difficult tests for governments in the field of making criminal law's internal and external (formal) disciplines. Examining historical changes demonstrates different positions and polices adopted by states in this concern. As many countries the new French penal law didn't show a complete definition of political crime and its features .The lack of a legislative definition of the criminal act is one of the most important reasons for the existence of many ambiguities in the lawyer's judgments and French judicial policy. Despite that, French Supreme Court has tried to eliminate these ambiguities and legislative methods bravely during recent years. These methods can be considered by all countries which their legislative ambiguities in defining the notion of political crime have deprived political offenders from certain formal and substantive legal privileges.
