Sexual Harassment

Sexual Harassment

The Criminal Code prohibits sexual harassment and prescribes simple imprisonment for the perpetrator. Whoever, apart from the cases specified in the preceding Article, procures from a woman sexual intercourse or any other indecent act by taking advantage of her material or mental distress or of the authority he exercises over her by virtue of his position, function or capacity as protector, teacher, master or employer, or by virtue of any other like relationship, is punishable, upon complaint, with simple imprisonment.
