Chapter Summary

Once a crime has been reported or even suspected, and depending on its prima facie nature, type and scale, it immediately might become the central focus of interest of the political, social, and, most of all, the legal community. The Magna Carta has been celebrated as the palladium of English/British liberty, a legal statement of enduring influence in the jurisprudence of not only common law countries, and it is often seen as the origin of the entitlement to due process of law. This chapter makes a note of the farcical nature of trials in courts of Communist regimes, and their notorious condemnations of political opponents of the government mostly relying on self-incrimination under torture and other pressure. It refers to three observations emblematic of the complex relationship between terrorism, anti-terrorist measures, and human rights.

Keywords: anti-terrorist measures; common law; crime; crisis government; human rights; Magna Carta; terrorism
