The Source of Crimes and Penalties

Rana E. Al-Otour


The necessity of criminal law comes through the principle of legality, which is based on “no crime, no punishment without text” But, since the criminal regime has developed, the meaning of this principle developed also.
First, it was meant by "the text", the Parliament law, which is made by the representatives of people, who have the exclusive competence of legislating, and oblige others to respect it.
Then, with the development of the criminal regime, we find that the word "text" means today, not only the Parliament law, but also all sorts of texts, including the constitution, international agreements, laws, legislative regulations and administrative regulations.
