Presentation of a guide based on cases of investigation of liability of legal persons for corruption offenses and Regional Manual on Common Typologies of Corruption and Money Laundering through Legal Entities for Colombia, Panama and Peru

Panama, March 31, 2022. There is a global consensus that the commission of crimes through legal persons or corporate entities plays a leading role in a wide range of new and sophisticated dynamics that the authorities must face.

In this regard, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, with the support of the British Embassy, has developed the second phase of the regional project “Corporate Accountability for Corruption Crimes in Colombia, Peru and Panama”, whose main objective is to strengthen the institutional capacity of these countries to hold legal entities accountable for acts of corruption.

Within the framework of this project, a guide was presented based on cases of investigation of the liability of legal entities for corruption offenses; the findings on gender and corporate corruption and the Regional Manual on Common Typologies of Corruption and Money Laundering through Legal Entities.

These documents were prepared in collaboration with national counterparts and include unique and relevant investigation cases in Colombia, Panama and Peru.
