    The principle of applying a single penalty for a single unlawful act is also provided by the European Convention on Human Rights. This principle involves the application of a single sanction for a single illegal act; the one who disregarded by his behavior, the rule of law will be responsible only once for the wrongful act, for a breach of the law corresponds to only one legal sanction.
