Securitate Pacis Law and Legal Definition

Securitate pacis means a Latin term which means ‘of security of the peace.’ It is a writ issued to someone who fears bodily harm from another, because of the threat with violence from the latter. In times of peace, if a man is menaced with death, unless s/he will commit an act of treason, murder, or robbery, the fear of death does not excuse him/her. Here the law has provided a sufficient remedy against such fears by applying for a writ or precept de securitate pacis. It is also called as securitatis pacis, writ of threats.
