Costituzione Italiana

Art. 3.

Tutti i cittadini hanno pari dignità sociale e sono eguali davanti alla legge, senza distinzione di sesso, di razza, di lingua, di religione, di opinioni politiche, di condizioni personali e sociali.

È compito della Repubblica rimuovere gli ostacoli di ordine economico e sociale, che, limitando di fatto la libertà e l'eguaglianza dei cittadini, impediscono il pieno sviluppo della persona umana e l'effettiva partecipazione di tutti i lavoratori all'organizzazione politica, economica e sociale del Paese.

Italian Constitution

Art.3

All citizens have equal social dignity and are equal before the law, without distinction of sex, race, language, religion, political opinions, personal and social conditions.

It is the duty of the Republic to remove those obstacles of an economic and social nature which, really limiting the freedom and equality of citizens, impede the full development of the human person and the effective participation of all workers in the political, economic and social organization of the country.

ANNEX 2
Excerpt from the Council Framework Decision on Combating Terrorism

According to Article 1 of the Council Framework Decision of 13 June 2002 on Combating Terrorism (2002/275/JHA), terrorist offences are intentional acts which, given their nature or context, may seriously damage a country or an international organisation where committed.

Terrorist offences are committed with the aim of

seriously intimidating a population, or

unduly compelling a Government or international organisation to perform or abstain from performing an act, or

seriously destabilising or destroying the fundamental political, constitutional, economic or social structures of a country or an international organisation.

Terrorist offences include

1. attacks upon a person’s life which may cause death;

2. attacks upon the physical integrity of a person;

3. kidnapping or hostage taking;

4. causing extensive destruction to a Government or a public facility, a transport system, an infrastructure facility, including an information system, a fixed platform located on the continental shelf, a public place or private property likely to endanger human life or result in major economic loss;

5. seizure of aircraft, ships or other means of public or goods transport;

6. manufacture, possession, acquisition, transport, supply or use of weapons, explosives or of nuclear, biological or chemical weapons, as well as research into and development of biological and chemical weapons;

7. release of dangerous substances, or causing fires, floods or explosions the effect of which is to endanger human life;

8. interfering with or disrupting the supply of water,power or any other fundamental natural resource the effect of which is to endanger human life;

9. threatening to commit any of the acts listed above.

Paragraph 2 of Article 2 obliges Member States to take the necessary measures to ensure that directing a terrorist group, participating in its activities including supplying of information or material resources, or by funding its activities are punishable.

Article 3 obliges Member States to take the necessary measures to ensure that terrorist-linked offences include aggravated theft, extortion and drawing up false administrative documents with a view to commit certain terrorist offences. According to Article 4, inciting or aiding or abetting offences referred to in the Framework Decision should also be made punishable.


"Individuals have international duties which transcend the national obligations of obedience…therefore have the duty to violate domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace and humanity from occurring."

-Nuremberg Tribunal, 1950

"Gli individui hanno dei doveri internazionali che trascendono gli obblighi nazionali di obbedienza... di conseguenza hanno il dovere di violare le leggi nazionali [quando serva] per prevenire l'evenienza di crimini contro la pace e l'umanità".
- Tribunale di Norimberga, 1950
