THE CRIMINAL ACT - COERCION – COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE MACEDONIAN CRIMINAL LEGISLATION AND THE SHARIA TREATMENT
The criminal acts are an unbreakable piece of our everyday life, the effective handling
of criminal acts today are one of the main indicators to ascertain the degree of development
and the success of a country. Depending on the type of the legal systems, different countries
have different state reactions.
The subject of detailed elaboration in this paper will be the criminal act of coercion
provided in the special part of the Criminal Code of the Republic of North Macedonia in
the chapter which encompasses criminal acts against the freedoms and rights of the man and
the citizen in article 139, which will be compared and analyzed with the same criminal act,
but provided and regulated within the sharia legal system, as a separate system present in the
Arabic countries, that is, countries with Islamic rule.
The freedom of decision-making and the freedom of acting are essential freedoms
established in international documents and elevated to a constitutional rank in our country.
Given the trend of increasing violent behavior of individuals, it is very useful to elaborate
this type of crime by comparing the treatment of the same crime in the Sharia legal system, a
system which in our country has not been sufficiently analyzed and experienced.
