About the Corporate Crimes Principles
A group of eminent legal experts, with the support of Amnesty International and ICAR, developed The Corporate Crimes Principles to encourage and assist State actors to pursue corporate criminal liability in human rights cases more effectively. The Corporate Crimes Principles were developed following extensive global consultations with investigators, prosecutors, lawyers and civil society actors. They provide practical guidance on issues such as: case selection, evidence collection, identifying tools, resources and strategies for effectively pursuing such cases, cross-border collaboration, and victims’ access to justice and witness protection.
