1. Provocation exists when the commission of a crime is directly incited through printing, radio broadcasting or any other means of similar effectiveness that facilitates publicity, or in the presence of a crowd of people.

An apology, for the purposes of this Code, is the exposition, before a gathering of people or by any means of dissemination, of ideas or doctrines that exalt the crime or exalt its author. The apology will only be criminal as a form of provocation and if, due to its nature and circumstances, it constitutes a direct incitement to commit a crime.
