General criminal law is a collective name for all crimes and offences laid down in the Dutch Criminal Code and a few additional laws. Property crimes (theft / embezzlement / fraud), Homicide (murder / manslaughter), sex crimes (rape / sexual assault), Opium Act offences (drugs) and Traffic Act offences (driving licence / alcoholic), among others, all fall within this law.
