Talk:United Kingdom Law/Miscellaneous draft clauses
In respect of this, I think the clause as currently drafted is dis-proportinate. Ideally, the level of penalty should be proportinate to the level of distress or injury the supposed action (to be undertaken by the co-erced person) and to the nature of the alleged legal matter that was being threatened.
I make this point because a public official wrongly advising someone that they could face a prosecution for failure to install certain fire equipment, is of a different character to a child protection official coercing someone into handing over a vulnerebale child where there was no legal authority for such a seizure.
