HUMAN RIGHTS : EXERCISE OF JUDICIAL CONTROL OVER THE EXECUTION OF SENTENCE IN THE PRISONS
Dr. Seema Yadav
Volume: 5 Issue: 2 2015
There was no criminal law in uncivilized society. Every man was liable to be attacked on his person or property at any time by any one. The person attacked either succumbed or over-powered his opponent. “A tooth for a tooth, an eye for an eye, a life for a life” was the forerunner of criminal justice. As time advanced, the injured person agreed to accept compensation, instead of killing his adversary. Subsequently, a sliding scale of satisfying ordinary offences came into existence. Such a system gave birth to the archaic criminal law.
