Assault and injury

Verified 27 April 2021 - Directorate of Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister), Ministry of Justice

Perpetrators of acts of violence can be punished both criminally and civilly. The criminal penalty is a fine or imprisonment, whereas the civil penalty is to compensate the victim for the harm caused. The extent of the penalties depends on whether the acts were intentional or involuntary, the severity of the injuries and the age and personality of the victim. Psychological violence is punished as much as physical violence.
