Use case law examples to support and defend your argument. The Charter of rights and freedoms focuses on many fundamental rights of individual, but often these rights conflict with one another. When such an issue arises there is a judicial review that the courts establish in understanding which right is more important on the basis of the case. In this paper two fundamental rights will be focused on that are freedom of religion and freedom of expression. These two rights often conflict with one another where freedom of expression is more important than freedom of religion.

According to Nigel Lowe and Brenda Sufrin and also in the context of second part of Article 129 and Article 215 of the Constitution the object of the contempt law is not only to punish, it includes the power of the Courts to prevent such acts which interfere, impede or pervert administration of justice. If in a given case the appropriate Court finds infringement of such presumption by excessive prejudicial publicity by the newspapers (in general), then under inherent powers, the Courts of Record suo motu or on being approached or on report being filed before it by subordinate court can under its inherent powers under Article 129 or Article 215 pass orders of postponement of publication for a limited period if the applicant is able to demonstrate substantial risk of prejudice to the pending trial.
There are limitations when it comes to defamation because people don’t have the right to show hatred towards others. Public figures, defamation based on truth, and when there are facts to support the defamation are all exceptions, but I believe that there should also be a limit. In this case it is libel defamation, as it’s written or typed on the internet. It should be regulated by law, as there should be certain rules that put a limit to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech on the internet can be regulated with good SEO which is, search engine optimization, and it’s a process that can control the visibility of websites, so it can be used to stop defamation by assigning these websites to lower or less used search engines.
Raz states that ‘The law can violate people’s dignity in many ways. It is clear that deliberate disregard for the rule of law violates human dignity. It is the business of law to guide human action by affecting people’s options. The violation of the rule of law can take two forms. It may lead to uncertainty or it may lead to frustrated expectations.’ What Raz is saying here is that it is best to adopt the formal theory of the rule of law over substantive, keeping law and human rights separate, otherwise it would clash and not concentrate on the basic formal principles that both theories are concerned with.
What society morally deems right, or wrong, can simply be a reflection of the law. At times, they serve to channel our conducts. But unfortunately, the law does not always serve morality justice, and moral principles are not always consistent across society.

Rights have been emphasized as fundamental building blocks of the social order of society. These are both moral/ legal norms, which are aimed at protecting people from various forms of abuse. The idea of human rights is often taken for granted, these human rights fall into two categories; legal and moral. When looking at rights one must consider, whether we have rights, what these rights are, where they come from, what it means to have rights and whether or not they are timeless or context specific. On top of this there are two types of rights that will be looked at in relation to gay rights and others in this essay, these are the Utilitarian idea and the Natural idea.
Article 10 of the European Constitution on Human Rights states that “Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority”. This is a conditional right, which may be limited insofar as it is prescribed by law and “necessary in a democratic society”. The key question is, to what extent is the prohibition of hate speech necessary in a democratic society? Some theorists argue that it is necessary for the law to prohibit speech which may cause offence or harm to
Is it every okay to inflict personal harm because it is “for the good of society”? While some forms of freedom of speech cause society to develop as a whole and acknowledge truths, other forms can be detrimental towards individuals. Mill addresses hate speech in On Liberty, which he refers to as harm principle. This principle, Mill claims, is the the only exception that restricts Freedom of Speech. However, when this topic was briefly reviewed in lecture on September 20, 2011, under the topic “Should harmful ideas be suppressed?” it was said that Mill’s theories claim: who decides what is harmful, and that harm itself should be up for debate.
This essay also aims to show that even though we may feel disgust for these types of offences we must remember the fundamentals of the Criminal Law system and understand that people are entitled to equality and fairness in the eyes of the law.

However the subjective nature of detaining someone after their release date is further complicated by the fact that there is no accurate basis for determining which offenders are likely to re-offend and which ones are not (Wortley and Smallbone, 2003). Is this type of legislation justified? In simple terms no.
