15 Translate the following paragraph Exemptions from criminal liability are of two kinds. A person may be exempted from criminal liability either (a) because something had deprived him of his free will and self-control (e.g. insanity, coercion or necessity), or (b) because he is one of the class of persons subject to special rules (e.g. foreign sovereigns and diplomats, minors under ten years of age, etc.).

16 Translate the following sentences 1. A marriage which has irretrievably broken down should be brought to an end with minimum distress to the parties and any children, in a manner to promote a good continuing relationship and to stop unreasonable costs from the process. 2. If evidence can be provided that the person asked to be helped in ending their own life and had the capacity to make that decision, assisted suicide is lawful. 3. There is no convincing evidence that the murder rate is lower in jurisdictions where capital punishment exists, which goes against the argument of its deterrent effect. 4. If a minor crime is committed and the offender is 18 or over, admits the crime a caution can be issued. The point is to avoid court proceedings and discourage the offender from reoffending.
