Ministerial Decree2

The Ministerial Decree

"It is your duty to report any suspected Mudblood to the Muggle-Born Commission."
—The Decree.[src]

The Ministerial Decree Number 188[1] was a formal authoritative order with the force of law issued by the Ministry of Magic during the Death Eater regime, in 1997. It was presumably issued by the anti-Muggle-born Muggle-Born Registration Commission.

It reaffirmed that the reporting of any Muggle-born wizards was mandatory (previously established, with punishment of imprisonment if violated, in Ministerial Decree Number 184), noting that it was a citizen's "duty" to report suspected Muggle-borns.[2]
