Seclude – this verb literally means to separate; to divide; to isolate. In terms of Law, within the Criminal Law an arrest warrant, issued by the investigating officer or by the prosecutor (depending of the concrete jurisdiction) pursues the goal to separate and isolate the suspect from the society, until the conviction is charged. This is done in case of serious offences and with the goal to avoid any possibility for the suspect to perform another crime or to hide from justice.
