Article 32 – The principle of legality

1. The Constitution, the law and the rest of the legal codes will be of strict compliance for all citizens, whatever their nationality or residence status.

2. No one may be punished or convicted for actions or omissions that are not explicitly and unequivocally provided for in the law prior to the date of their execution.

3. Custodial sentences and postdelictuals security measures will always aim at the social reintegration of the individual, notwithstanding the corresponding distressing component.
