Crimes Without Victim
The word crime itself dreads a person’s mind person into the mysterious shades of black and grey vis-à-vis to antisocial activities and elements. Simply put, a crime can be defined as a legal wrong or a violation of certain conditions prescribed under law.
In general, every crime may presuppose, a definitive existence of a victim. However, there are certain forms of crimes, which may not have, any clear victims and even no victims at all. Such crimes are also known as ‘victimless crimes.’
Every crime may be construed to be, as some violation of law, set up by a legislative or judiciary body; but not every violation of the law can be construed as a crime.
A layman may simply think that there may not be any victim, without a crime. Yet a greater penetrating question to ponder is, can there really be any crime, which may have no victim?
Most of the criminal laws, which are framed, contemplating various facets of criminology and victimology, are intended to prevent people, not turning into criminals, through their unsolicited behavior and actions. Besides these criminal laws prescribe, a specific set of remedies, for rectifying the damages done by a culprit to its victim.
A major section of criminal laws goes for defining the conditions and elements, which materialize to define an incident as a crime; like legality, human being, mens rea, actus reus, injury, punishment, and so on. The complexity of interpretations of various laws and legal theories, among several jurisdictions and legal scholars around the globe, merely adds up to the perplexity of definitions of a crime and its victims.
Incidentally, such unjust complacency in the laws and legal systems may actually turn out to be, ethically wrong; if not legally wrong. Therefore, such acts may still not qualify, as a crime, in the first appearance; and still there exist a plethora of many soul-provoking crimes, like prostitution, drug use, traffic violation, pornography, gambling, forced marriages, marital rape, human trafficking, public drunkenness, trespassing, online identity theft, privacy concerns, unsolicited data collection, blasphemy, white-collar crimes like an understatement of taxable income, over-stated deduction, begging and so on; which may never let any society; and its members to be renowned as civilized.
The nature and severity of such crimes may certainly differ, from instance to instance. However, the clarity over the harm or injury caused, to the so-called victim is undoubted, and untraceable most of the time. Besides, even the victim himself/herself may not have any realization of his own victimization, at all.
Therefore, it is pertinently pressing cause, for creating a just society, that whenever we revisit such issues on a serious note, we enable every Indian citizen about his/her moral and legal responsibilities; so that the spirit of justice is not suppressed, due to any form of crime, whether it has any victims or not.
Ultimately there may not be any reiteration of such rhetoric, merely for lip service, that the justice delayed is justice denied. As the objective and accountable citizens of tomorrow, we need to revamp our legal system and laws, with a greater sense of responsibility and determination, so that no crime goes unattended, and no crime goes unpunished, irrespective of the mere fact that there may exist any victim or not.
The legal profession is undergoing a sea-change due to rising technology and new breeds of crimes. Mahindra University, School of Law takes a trailblazing initiative to serve society by transforming today’s citizens into the technology-skilled and responsible legal professionals of tomorrow.
