Ever wondered why the laws are so important for the society we live in? The answer is really easy actually – people cannot live without laws, as there would be chaos everywhere. Just imagine what would it be like if there are would be no rules or regulations to deal with the traffic on public roads, or if the criminals would be left to wonder around without being punished for their crimes.
The truth is that having laws for everything helps you live in a safer society – as the above examples, traffic needs to be done in a certain way, and those who do have cars and those who drive them need to respect the strictness of the laws.
Implementing the laws is extremely important, not just because there are certain aspects that not everyone knows about these laws, but also because some people need to be specially trained for this type of work.
There are different types of laws in order, and this is valid for all the modern societies around the world – there are laws that forbid you from doing something, laws that allow you do to something and laws that tell you how to act in certain situations.
Not knowing the law will not prevent the law enforcers from punishing you or giving you a fine.
Those who want to start a business need to have information from different areas, it’s true, but most importantly – they need to have the right information about taxes. It’s also important to know the financial laws that are applicable, because those are the ones who tell them what they can do and what they can’t do in their activity.
Each type is differently regulated, and it’s important to know which one applies for your business. In many cases, that’s one of the reasons why a business needs an accountant – they are specialized in this type of activity that comes with dealing with finances, and they will tell you everything you need to know about taxes and the rest of the papers.
As was the given example with the cars, let’s extend a little. There are laws that apply to the traffic on public roads – where you can drive and with what speed, who can drive a certain type of vehicle and what signs you need to respect. This is one type of special law. Of course, there are others – laws that are about insurance – when it’s needed, when it’s mandatory or what type of insurance you need to do.
The penal code is one of those laws that says what you are not allowed to do, and it’s also one that anyone should read at least once in their lifetime. It’s about the crimes that are possible but forbidden, about the penalty for committing to a criminal life and what happens when that law is broken.
The civil code is something that covers almost all the aspects of life, and many of the regulations find in that code are extended and structured in other laws, in an extended version. It’s also something that people should be interested, because it deals with selling and buying, contracts, marriage, family law and divorces and so on.
Law enforcers are those who make sure that the law, in general, is applied. In some areas, there is the sheriff who takes care of everything that happens in his or her jurisdiction. When some crimes are committed by criminals from other areas, the case is taken over by higher people in law enforcement, and they could be represented by national police or other law enforcement institutions that have jurisdiction over a large territory.
Crimes against women
When brought into position with international human rights standards, such as those contained in the meeting on the Elimination of all Forms of prejudice against Women laws as well as policies can often play a positive role in changing attitudes as well as behaviors in the long term, especially when they are accompanied by opposite strategies such as awareness-raising on ending aggression. Once laws are in place, they express a strong message that aggression against women is not tolerated and that it is the true of every woman to live free of aggression.
Women works to influence the adoption of superior normative frameworks on ending aggression against women as well as girls and partners with Governments and women’s advocates for their implementation in the course of the adoption, strengthening as well as implementation of national laws, policies as well as strategies.
Crimes against women are more common than you may think, as many have been victims of abuse and domestic violence, which range from felonies and misdemeanors. After the Government approved a comprehensive new law against gender-based aggression, Women helped train judges, attorneys as well as police on implementation and assisted in disseminating information concerning the law to the general public. A judge as well as two prosecutors now works specifically on gender-based aggression cases. Court sentencing on the whole has fallen to two months—from as much as five years. The law mandates prolonged services such as shelters as well as treatment programs for offenders.
Women-supported advocacy helped offer confidence to pass legal reforms that explain femicide as an illegal offence and measures to put off as well as punish it.
Women supported women parliamentarians as well as political leaders in a country, as well as private advocates, in backing passage of sweeping latest legislation to put off the use of acid in attacks on women as well as to stop damaging customary practices. The Criminal Law Act 2011 for the initial time levies jail sentences as well as fines for acid attacks, which were not familiar as a crime until lately. The avoidance of Anti-Women Practices Act penalizes artistic traditions once viewed as satisfactory, including forced marriages.
First National Policy To Combat Violence
The Cabinet lately adopted the first national policy to combat violence against women. With Women’s hold up, survivors of aggression took part in drafting it. The policy unifies existing efforts to end aggression against women, covering: improved policing, the request of forensic science to aggression cases, extended social services as well as better training of social workers. As one footstep towards implementation, the Cabinet approved on a by-law allowing the Ministry of Social Affairs to need all shelters for survivors of aggression to uphold quality as well as human rights standards. It draws from first-class practices developed at the Women-backed Centrer, a pioneering proposal offering women a full variety of services to recover from aggression, seek legal restore as well as develop livelihood skills.
