Bribery and Genocide

Posted on 23-12-14
Written By: Judge Giovanni Bonello

This article considers new legislation introduced in Malta to fight corruption, with prescription being removed in cases of the crime of corruption being committed by officers in the public service. Judge Giovanni Bonello draws a comparison between this crime and the only other offences which are not time barred under national legislation, namely genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. Is this a step in the direction of more transparent governance or a potential violation of human rights?
