How Has the Law Developed on Intention?
The law on intention on my judgment is not satisfactory, as in several cases and examples, as listed above, it causes a lot of uncertainty. According to the traditional principle, actus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea, which means that "an act does not make a man guilty unless the mind is guilty". In other words, without the existence of a guilty intention, a person should not be found guilty of committing some crime - accidental acts are not to be regarded as criminal. How, for example, are we to treat people who commit crimes out of negligence, for example failing to stop at a stop sign because they did not see it? They are often given a fine and held responsible for that negligence, which would seem to violate the above principle. Therefore on this basis, Parliament should regard the law on intention as not being adequate enough for what we are now experiencing on a daily basis, and legislate now to stop more perplexity occurring.
