I - LEGAL UPDATES

ruled that imposing dual penalties in
disciplinary proceedings for the
same charge violates the principle of
double jeopardy.

The Madras High Court ruled that
merely watching child pornography

downloading such content, had it
within his private domain.

II - EXPLORING INTERSECTIONS

comprehensive approaches
