punishes
A relation between two Agents where the first represents some Organization, and is authorized by it to take some action against the second Agent. Note that this does not include cases where one individual simply takes action against another individual, such as a parent punishing a child for misbehavior. It also must be a response to some real or perceived action, rather than spontaneous negative action. The Organization must in some sense want the punishment to be given, either collectively or simply because the punisher is an authorized representative who decides on the punishment. Note that one agent could both punish and reward another agent.
