Disclaimer. We have tried to present the most relevant, accurate and up-to-date information, but there will be errors, subjective choices, inconsistencies due to many people involved, as well as references to law that has been changed or constitutions that have been amended. We try to monitor and to keep abreast, but with 192 countries in our database, it is very difficult. It is therefore very important that one verifies any fact before contemplating legal action or mobilisation, so that this database only serves as an inspiration for seeking further information.
