Penalty is the most severe coercive measure prescribed by the Criminal Code for offenders. The decision of sentences is made by the proceeding agency. However, the type and the level of sentences for each offense are regulated quite diversely and the decision on sentences that is based on relatively many bases, requires the comprehensive and careful consideration of the proceeding agency. For Usury in civil transactions, the decision of sentences by the competent authority in practice still faces some difficulties and obstacles, including the area of the Southeast provinces. Therefore, the authors chose to analyze the issue of deciding the sentences for Usury in civil transactions in the Southeast provinces in the period from 2020 to 2022.
