State bodies have a right to resort to state compulsion, i.e. to a group of compulsion means which are an attribute of the state only. One of the most severe forms of state compulsion is direct compulsion which is applied predominantly by public officials in order to protect the rights and liberty of an individual and to ensure public safety.
