In this comparative Law study, the authors analyse, with a critical perspective,
the influence of the French case law and doctrine in the Colombian Supreme
Courts interpretation ofthe Civil Code texts about indemnification ofdamages
under tort law. They conclude that not only a great deal of the French theories
about the concept of `guilt"are hardly applicable in the Colombian Law, and
also, that our national court decisions seem to use the concept of "Guilt" to
hide true strict liability regimes
