Description This paper will address issues of corporate criminal liability in terms of enterprises. Criminal liability of legal persons is now a major problem that must deal the enterprises with. The contribution points out the major issues associated with this topic when the legal person may be held criminally responsible and how we can prevent such criminal liability. This issue arises with several questions that need to be pointed out. For example, what are the conditions of the criminal liability of the enterprises, which criminal off enses can be committed, or is it possible to prevent such criminal responsibility, etc. These issues will be the subject of discussion and contribution to current findings.
