Record number 561428
Title Corporate Criminal Liability under International Law : The New TVS.A.L. and Akhbar Beirut S.A.L. Cases at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon
Author(s) Bernaz, Nadia
Source Journal of International Criminal Justice 13 (2015)2. - ISSN 1478-1387 - p. 313 - 330.
Publication type Refereed Article in a scientific journal
Publication year 2015

Relying on the Tribunal's inherent powers, the Appeals Panel of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon decided in two cases, New TV S.A.L. and Akhbar Beirut S.A.L., that the Tribunal has jurisdiction over corporations for the offence of contempt. They decided so despite the absence of a clear provision explicitly granting such jurisdiction. This is the first time an international criminal tribunal asserts jurisdiction over legal persons. The article critically presents the Appeals Panel's findings and places them in their historical and international context. Although limited in scope, the decisions are of great significance as business and human rights developments at the international level have emphasized the need for enhanced corporate accountability.
