Schedule 1

ARTICLE 7 NO PUNISHMENT WITHOUT LAW

1. No one shall be held guilty of any criminal offence on account

of any act or omission which did not constitute a criminal

offence under national or international law at the time when it

was committed. Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than

the one that was applicable at the time the criminal offence

was committed.

2. This Article shall not prejudice the trial and punishment of any

person for any act or omission which, at the time when it was

committed, was criminal according to the general principles

of law recognised by civilised nations.
