Why does lawyers say things like " what is a criminal offence CONTRARY to section of of the crimal act 1971.
The reason I asked is that when i see the word contrary , I would think that they are looking for the opposite of what the act states. what is robbery contrary to theft act. why use CONTRARY and just say what is a criminal offence according to criminal act 1971

opposite in nature or character; diametrically or mutually opposed
so when it's contrary the law might say you MUST do something and you don't or you don't do what the law is intending you should
remeber the words AGAINST the law

THE CRIMINAL ACT WAS SET UP TO WORK FOR THE CRIMINALS .SO THEY INCORPORATED WORDS THAT CONTRADICT WHAT IS THE REAL CRIME --THIS ALLOW THEM TO FIND LOOPHOLES IN THE SYSTEM TO ALWAYS PUNISH THE FOOLS AND REA-LEASE THE SMARTIES .BREAK THE CODE WE ARE ALL STRAW MEN -SO LETS GO WALK ON THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD AND GO SEE THE WIZARD 7777.
