Corporate criminal law regulates the liability of legal persons (e.g. companies, associations, organizations). This area of law is concerned with crimes that are tolerated, facilitated or provoked in the course of the work of a company, association or organization.
In 2013, ECCHR submitted a criminal complaint against a German manager of timber company Danzer Group. He is accused of aiding and abetting, through omission, the crimes of rape, grievous bodily harm, false imprisonment and arson in the DR Congo.
