Yearbook 2015

Monaco. According to COUNTRYAAH, Monaco is the capital of Monaco which is located in Western Europe. The UN Human Rights Committee criticized Monaco for too harsh penalties for those convicted of “lèse majesté”, ie for “damaging the monarch” or insulting members of the prince’s family.

The Committee found that fines were the usual penalty, but there was room for up to five years in prison. An example was mentioned of a 28-year-old Tunisian who in 2014 was sentenced to three months imprisonment for having expressed condemnation of the princely family.
