There is a real threat that the Criminal Code draft article which is intended as a means of criminal law aims to protect the interests of the state, on the other hand, it has potential to be a repressive tool of power. The Criminal Code draft provides settings that open up more to ensure human rights, on the contrary, the Criminal Code settings seem crueler than the Criminal Code. This explanation can be seen in the articles of the Criminal Code draft about humiliation which has broader range and likely even without limit.
