    Since the 1970s, high profile corporate killings forced the need to assess the criminal responsibility of corporations which have caused human or environmental fatalities. This enterprise proved difficult, and the task was not necessarily made easier by the 2007 Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act (c.19). The question to be asked is whether the Act serves any real public interest or merely pays lip service to the ‘war on crime’ agenda.
