Common law legal systems model legislative provisions on money laundering, terrorism financing, preventive measures and proceeds of crime by Commonwealth Secretariat( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Corruption undermines the rule of law, good governance, and sustainable growth and development. Most countries have prohibited all forms of corruption, yet corruption persists due largely to a lack of appropriate strategies and structures to inhibit it. Such strategies include effective and comprehensive legal frameworks to prevent, punish and take the profit out of corruption. The Common Law Legal Systems Model Legislative Provisions aims to enable Commonwealth countries to evaluate measures that can be incorporated into domestic law to prevent, detect, and effectively sanction money laundering and terrorism financing and to recover the proceeds of crime"--Back cover

Judicial bench book on violence against women in Commonwealth East Africa( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The judiciary plays a central role in enhancing and protecting women's rights, as well as the development and enforcement of formal legal responses to discriminatory and criminal activities, including violence against women (VAW). The Judicial Bench Book on Violence Against Women in Commonwealth East Africa situates VAW in four member countries, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. By placing VAW within the socio-cultural and legal context of the region, it is hoped that the bench book will enhance the ability of judicial officers to handle cases of VAW, both within a human rights as well as a gender perspective. It is a quick reference for judicial officers, in line with the foundations of the common law system -- stare decisis and judicial precedent. Through case law, the book discusses measures to address VAW and the role of the judiciary in ensuring that the state fulfills its obligations. It also includes examples of how a lack of appreciation of the lived realities of women victims of violence can lead to denial of justice. The critique of such cases will expose the injustice arising from failure to interpret the law through a gender lens, thereby offering important lessons to judicial officers--Page 4 of cover
