The court has made the comparison of different crimes according to the principle of proportion in a groundwork for changes in the law which shows that it’s possible to compare two crimes with similar punishment.

Both the court and the social norms decided that rape is always worse than crimes against the state and the court gave the offenders in rapes twice as high penalty than the tax criminals. (Less)
