The “Police, Crimes, Sentences and Courts” bill, known as the “Law and Order” bill, is introduced in the British Parliament every year, but this year its sensitivity has increased due to the murder of a young woman by a British police officer.
In this controversial bill, the British government seeks to “strengthen the power of the police to deal with non-violent protests that have a significant detrimental effect on society or access to parliament.”
However, the phrases that have attracted the most attention of critics are the accusations of “making noise” and “causing serious disturbance.” The bill provides for up to ten years in prison for harassment through noise.
