Black’s Law Dictionary defines Capital Crime (offence) as "One for which the punishment of death is pref scribed and inflicted. Walker v. State, 28 Tex. 1 App. 503. 13 S. W. 860; Ex parte Dusen.berry, 97 Mo. 504. 11 S. W. 217."
The UNHCR defines SGBV as Sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) refers to any act that is perpetrated against a person’s will and is based on gender norms and unequal power relationships.
Most legal systems, such as the [common law] and the [civil law]systems, evolve, less and less crimes are capital offences and in many countries, none are as the [death penalty] has been abolished.
It is my take that crimes of SGBV should be a capital offence/felony/crime since it is a violation of human rights, denies the human dignity of the individual and hurts human development. it can also be classified as a crime against humanity since the victims or survivors suffer a lot than many could comprehend.
