BROWNE New York Times Service BELGRADE, Yugoslavia An old Balkan quarrel of the kind once capable of starting major European wars has been striking vestigial sparks during the last week, causing muted grumbling between the neighboring communist governments of Bulgaria and Yugoslavia. At issue is the status of Macedonia, which Yugoslavia views as a nation and which Bulgaria does not. Underlying the argument is a territorial dispute between Serbia (now part of Yugoslavia) and Bulgaria, a disagreement that dates from the middle ages. Armies no longer mobilize over such matters, chanceleries deliver no ultimatum and there is no prospect of even a break in diplomatic relations. But polemics in print, diplomatic sniping and a certain cooling in relations have resulted. SPATE OF CHARGES The current spate of charges started two weeks ago after a report was published in Sofia, the Bulgarian capital, by the central committee of the Bulgarian communist party. The report discusses national minorities in Bulgaria but fails to mention Macedonians. The omission of Macedonians raised hackles here within hours, and there has been angry talk of a deliberate, nasty provocation by Sofia. Of about two million Macedonians, roughly half live in the Republic of Macedonia, one of the six federated republics of Yugoslavia. The Belgrade government, ever sensitive to the centrifugal ethnic forces built into this patchwork nation, has encouraged all Us nationalities to preserve their customs. language and. up to a point political distinctions. But other Macedonians remain concentrated in neighboring parts of Albania, Greece and Bulgaria. Wars and oppression over the centuries have driven many Macedonians out of the area entirely (For instance, about a quarter of the population of Toronto is of Macedonian origin) but the majority of Macedonians live in a definite part of southeastern Europe. TERRITORIAL CLAIMS Bulgarians traditionally regard Macedonians as Bulgarians. without substantial rights to a national identity of- their own. The Macedonian language is similar to Bulgarian. But in Yugoslavia, the Serbs, on the other hand, referred to Macedonia until recent times as "South Serbia Only under the new federated Yugoslav Republic do Serbs acknowledge a Macedonian identity. part of the bitterness of the Macedonian question as it persists today stems from rival territorial claims by Serbia and Bulgaria, despite the modern phenomena' of international peace and communist dialectics. By STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA (CP) Ignorance of the law or an honest mistake would be a defence in court for most of tens of thousands of offences now in Canadian statute books under a recommendation released here. The recommendation in a Law Reform Commission of Canada working paper adds, however, that the defendant should prove such ignorance or reversal of the principle that the onus of proof is on the prosecution. The paper also says that those guilty of these offences should not, generally speaking, face prison sentences. The recommendation would cover a vast array of offences not dealt with under the Criminal traffic violations, through hunting and fishing regulations to directives of the Food and Drug Act. All of these so-called regu- latory offences are designed to protect the people or their interests from harm but not bring an individual to justice. The working paper says all real rape, burglary for remain under the Criminal Code and that the necessity of proving intent to-commit a crime must continue to rest on the prosecution. REPLACE PRINCIPLE But iff the case of the rela- tively minor offences covered under other statutes, the prin- ciple of "strict liability" should be replaced by one of "due diligence." That means that no longer would it be necessary simply to prove that an offence had been committed to get a for instance a storekeeper selling adulterated food. The charged person could seek to prove he was not aware of the law or that, although an offence may have been committed, it was the result of no fault of his own. The radical new approach to reversal of the axiom that ignorance is no excuse- was made by a commission. charged with considering the whole structure of federal criminal law with a view to reform. Working papers such as this are thrown out for public de- bate and consideration. The commission invites feedback from the public and those in- volved in law. Eventually it will make a recommendation to the federal government based both on its work and on the feedback. While1 emphasizing that this paper deals only with federal law, it invites provinces and municipalities to consider its recommendations which it says are designed to produce both more justice and more efficiency. RAMIFICATIONS VAST It says federal laws contain about regulatory offences and the laws of the average province have another About 90 per cent of these were "strict liability" offences, where the intent of the charged person is not considered. In 70 per cent of the offences, impris- onment is a legal possibility. The paper adds that there are about convictions, involving persons, under strict-liability laws each year. By far the most of these concern traffic offences. While it says the problem these figures outline is enormous, in actual practice its investigations show that hardly any prosecutions are launched against people not at fault. But it says this is not good enough. The man in charge of enforcement must not be per- mitted to determine the ques- tion of fault. "Practice fails to alle- viate the injustice of strict lia- bility in regulatory it says. "Instead it generates other possibility of petty tyranny and administrative oppression." The paper often mentions the possibility of punishing a man who doesn't deserve it. "Justice limits punishment to those to whom it is who are at fault and are to blame not only because of the act they did but because of their intention, knowledge, recklessness or negligence. "Punishment is never due to those who make mere reason- able and unavoidable mistakes. ______________ INSURANCE LIABILITY BONOS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD Established 1911 Uwtr Floor 817 4th S.
