Crimes Against Privacy
The Criminal Code highlights various criminal activities in relation to the privacy rights of an indivividual. In certain cases, a crime can be committed through the capturing and distruibution of a personal image without the individual’s consent.
Similarly, the crimes vary in severity and depend on the individual who carries it out, the victim, the nature of the content and whether it is generating profit.
The Constitutional Tribunal uses three different elements to determine whether a crime against privacy has ocurred or not. These are: the reliability of the information (in case it is false, in some circumstances, it is a crime against honour) the public relevance of the individual, and the level of public interest surrounding the distributed content.
