Private prosecutions: safeguards


This inquiry examined the safeguards that exist for private prosecutions brought by organisations who act as the investigator, prosecutor but are also the victim of the alleged offence.

It looked at:

  • Whether existing safeguards are enough to limit the potential for private prosecutions by large organisations to cause miscarriages of justice
  • The merits of additional safeguards that could be used.
