Section 264. Aggravated threats

Aggravated threats are punishable by imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years. In determining whether the threat is aggravated, particular weight shall be given to whether it was directed at a defenceless person, whether it was made without provocation or by multiple persons acting together, and whether it was motivated by the aggrieved person's skin colour, national or ethnic origin, religion, life stance, homosexual orientation or impaired functional ability.
