Section 57. Restraining orders

A restraining order may be made against any person who has committed a criminal act when there is reason to believe that the person will otherwise
  1. a.
    commit a criminal act against another person,
  2. b.
    stalk another person, or
  3. c.
    otherwise disturb another person's peace.
The restraining order may provide that the person subject to the order may not
  1. a.
    be present in specific areas, or
  2. b.
    stalk, visit or otherwise contact another person.
If there is an obvious risk of an act specified in the first paragraph, a), the offender may be banned from his/her own home.
The restraining order may be limited subject to specific conditions.
If deemed necessary to ensure compliance with the restraining order, the court may decide that the person subject to the restraining order shall have electronic monitoring imposed for all or part of the duration of the restraining order. Such monitoring may only entail registration of information that the convicted person is moving within areas covered by the restraining order, information that the convicted person is moving in the vicinity of the aggrieved person, and information on any loss of signal from the monitoring equipment. The convicted person has a duty to provide such assistance and follow such police instructions as are necessary for implementation of the monitoring. The King may issue further rules on the implementation of electronic monitoring, including on the handling of personal data in connection with such monitoring.
A loss of rights pursuant to this provision may be imposed as the only penalty if the minimum penalty prescribed for the act does not exceed one year of imprisonment.
