Iranian legal system

 Iranian Legal system

The principle of legality of crimes and punishments (nullum crimen, nulla poena sine lege)

states that an act is not regarded a crime and does not warrant punishment unless the

legislator first determines and publishes the criminal title and penalty.

Individual security is protected by the legality principle, which ensures basic individual

liberties against the state's arbitrary and unlawful intervention. As a result, a criminal court

cannot declare an individual's actions to be crimes and assign punishments to them, or impose

punishments that are not authorised by the Legislator and are not based on the wording of the

law. It is not considered a criminal whether an act is morally rebuked or socially against the

public order, and the Legislator is the only authority who may identify such actions as crimes.

The Constitution and regular legislation of Iran's legal system, both before and after the

Islamic Revolution, have clearly highlighted the compliance of the aforementioned concept.

When there is no text, silence, or a lack of law, the criminal court is obligated to pronounce

an innocent judgement.

Ordinary rules, such as s. 214 of the Criminal Procedure of Public and Revolutionary Courts

Act 1999 and s. 8 of the Revolutionary and Public Courts Act 1994, have allowed the

criminal judge to refer to jurisprudence and religious decrees in order to assign criminal titles

and related punishments in recent years, as a result of widespread misunderstanding of Art.

167 of the Constitution.

In Criminal Law, the constructional underpinnings of the crime are explored, including the

actus reus, mens rea, and legal grounding. The need of passing laws relating to criminal titles

is underlined in this debate, and this concept is established in the legality principle of crimes

and punishments in Criminal Law. The Latin phrase "nullum crimen, nulla poena sine lege"

inspired this notion.

As a result, no conduct, no matter how immoral or against the public interest or public order,

is deemed a crime unless it is specifically prohibited by law. As a result, even if the criminal

judge proves that the act is worthy and useful in the interests of the community, the criminal

judge cannot construe the act as a crime and assign punishment because the Legislator is the

only authority who can assign criminal titles and predict appropriate punishments because he

is the representative of the community and is elected by the individuals of the society. We

cannot allow the criminal court to view as a crime whatsoever he considers to be against the

public interest or order, and he should not assign a punishment to it if the legislator is

negligent or inattentive.

The second result is that the Criminal Law must be interpreted strictly, with the criminal

court referring to the content of legal documents to award punishments and determine

accusative titles, rather than relying on analogy or an unfavourable idea. In the Logic of Law,

the aforementioned claims are related and coherent occurrences. As a result, the legality

principle and its implications are inextricably linked. It is impossible to accept part of it while

rejecting the rest. Unless under rare circumstances, the Legislator who creates the Criminal

Law cannot vary from this concept and its ramifications. He also won't be able to apply his

new laws and standards to past activities of persons.

The Doctrine of Alternative Danger

  THE DOCTRINE OF ALTERNATIVE DANGER Although the plaintiff is supposed to be cautious in spite of the defendant’s Negligence, there can also be certain situations when the plaintiff is justified in taking some threat where some unsafe state of affairs has been created by way of the defendant. The plaintiff may appear as puzzled or worried through a hazardous state of affairs created via the defendant and to store his man or woman or property, or now and again to store a third party from such danger, he may take a choice risk. The law, therefore, lets in the plaintiff to come across a choice danger to shop by himself from the chance created via the defendant. If the path adopted by him results in some harm to himself, his motion in opposition to the defendant will now not fail. The judgment of the plaintiff, however, is not rash. The position can be defined by means of the case of Jones v . Boyce . In that case, the plaintiff used to be a passenger in the defendant’s train and instruct
