The law text I have
is not exactly the text of the
web. It seems that one version
(the web one) is the first version of the law,
whereas I have a more complete version, the
problem is that the date of the law ion the
web is more recent than the date I have (same
month though), but the number of the law on
the web is more ancient than mine. My version
doesn’t bring much more, just more bla bla,
like "all citizen of the region shall respect
the flag…", etc..
