Arrogation

 

(Russian, samoupravstvo), under Soviet criminal law, one of the crimes against the governmental order. It consists in the arbitrary exercise of one’s actual or supposed right in violation of the legally established order, thereby causing substantial harm to citizens or to state or social organizations. Such an act may also be an honest mistake, for example, the unauthorized appropriation of disputed property.

Under the RSFSR Criminal Code (art. 200), arrogation may be punished by corrective labor for a term not exceeding 6 months, by a fine of up to 50 rubles, or by social censure; or it may entail the application of measures of social pressure. Arrogation committed by an official using his position is viewed as the exceeding of authority or official powers.
