EVROPSKI STANDARDI I KAZNENI SISTEM REPUBLIKE SRBIJE
In the system of measures of societal responses to perpetrators of criminal acts all contemporary states apply several different kinds and measures of criminal sanctions. In this way, they strive towards individualisation of a criminal sanction in accordance with the kind and extent of a specific criminal act committed by each perpetrator. They are corresponding to his psychological characteristics as well to the degree of danger caused by the extent an intensity of its effects. However, within a criminal judgement system various kinds of penalties depriving the perpetrator of his rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution and laws or limiting them are those that are the most often applied. Yet, the penalty system should be harmonised in all aspects with the relevant European standards.
