Abstract: When the Criminal Code of Malta was promulgated just over a century ago it was hailed as a very enlightened code of laws and so it was indeed. Suffice it to remark that it made no provision for any form of corporal punishment. When the position regarding corporal punishment in Malta in 1854 is compared with the corresponding position in England up to very recently it will be readily admitted that Malta was in this respect well ahead of the times. But although the criminological outlook of the code promised fair for the times, it is a fact that in certain respects, especially with regard to the treatment of young offenders, the present state of our law leaves room for a measure of improvement in the light of new developments in the field of criminal science.
