Public rebuke

Public rebuke – the Criminal Law defines the public rebuke as legal sanction for small and not serious offences. The public rebuke is usually published in the local newspaper, or put on the notification table at public places where the punished offender visits often and can be recognized by the society. The goal pursued with the public rebuke is to make the offender feel ashamed from the wrongful act he has committed and been sentenced for. Sometimes detailed as “public reprimand”.
