Civil Decisions in Criminal Judgements

Enforcing the civil judgements (‘ECJ’) is the final stage of the procedural process in executing the Court’s legally enforcable judgements and rulings. Besides civil cases judgements required to be enforced (‘JE’), there is also a civil judgement enforcement section in criminal cases – this includes the enforcement of monetary or asset amounts in criminal cases (‘ECPCJR’). This encompasses: fines; confiscation of assets; retrospective collection of illicitly earned money and assets; handling of material evidence and assets; court fees; support obligations to victims; compensation for loss of life, damage to health, honor, and dignity; assets-related compensation, etc. As such, it can be seen that civil enforcement in criminal cases cover a variety of areas.  In addition to active areas of enforcement such as fines, confiscation of assets, retrospective collection of illicitly earned money and assets, handling of material evidence and assets, and court fees, other obligations or amounts in criminal judgements and rulings shall comply with the petitions, typically:

Enforcing support obligations in criminal judgements and rulings

This comprises the support obligations of the perpetrators in the criminal cases which result in death to the aggrieved persons. In these cases, perpetrators are obliged to provide support to the dependents of the aggrieved person in accordance with the law.

Compensation for damage to property, life, health, honor, and dignity in criminal cases

This is a reimbursement and compensation obligation in criminal cases when perpetrators of criminal acts cause damage or loss to others. The perpetrators of the crime are obliged to compensate and reimburse the victims in amounts declared by the Court.
