Countries With the Worst Laws

The Top Ten

1 Sri Lanka Sri Lanka Sri Lanka, officially the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and known from the beginning of British colonial rule until 1972 as Ceylon, is an island country in South Asia near south-east India.

Are you Kidding' me!?
Sri Lanka has the Worst Laws of the whole Solar System if not for the whole Universe! With the blend of its horrendously abominable Culture, Sri Lanka has the most diabolically atrocious Laws known to Mankind & to the whole Human Race! The Lawyers are abjectly corrupted as innocent locals, we have to buy them Whiskey & Brandy if we were to win Lawsuits... The Lawsuits? (specially when it comes to Land & Property) No country on the surface of this planet wastes more time of the innocent people as in Sri Lanka! They waste 50 - 100 years to finish a single Lawsuit! The Great-Grandson of the poor plaintiff would be Dead by the time of the verdict! And most importantly, by 2012 (The Latest & the Greatest NEWS of the Country): the Chief Justice of the Country is also corrupted!
Need more to convince the obnoxiously abhorrent Law in Sri Lanka? - Nirmal1991USA

Corruption is the Cancer of my country Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan Bastards assault 6 year old girls repeatedly, but you can get away with excuse of you were drunk and by bribing. Very tolerant to the crime involved alcohol, drugs & smoking. The Worst, Worst, WORST Country with the WORST Laws!

It's Sri Lanka @ 1st & Saudi Arabia @ 2nd...
Sri Lankan Authorities made a fake Birthday to the maid Rizana Nafeek who went to Saudi Arabia (She was listed as 23 years old but her real age was 17! ) If Sri Lankan Authorities didn't alter her age, poor Rizana would not have been Sadistically Executed in Saudi Arabia.

Sri lanka is the probably the worst country in the world both for it's laws and gigantic taxes on it's population. not to mention the policemen urinating on the streets.

should be worse than number 1!

US laws are ambiguous by design to facilitate the need of lawyers. If you are charged with a crime you have a 96% chance on conviction in any U.S. county. A good, and expensive attorney will give you greater success, but not a guarantee. I feel far safer when I am in S.E. Asia because it doesn't cost much to bribe, however be warned as to not cause them to loose face!

We have many many people serving life in prison with no possibility of parole for nonviolent crimes, while murderers and rapists go free. We have more people in prison per capita than any other country on Earth more than even North Korea, China or Russia. There are thousand of prisons dotting the landscape. In many towns the only legitamate work available is working in a prison.
This is not a free country, it is becoming a vast gulag, this has happening in only the last 40 years.

The Justice system in the USA is total disgrace and the people are naive until they are involved in it, then they realize that you are not safe here from the criminal that the Justice system protects for bribes,

Terrible, terrible, terrible
PCAs, super corrupt judges, unethical dirty scumbag attorneys etc etc.
