This case study explores the corporate criminal liability of the Chinese National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) for complicity in the Darfur genocide in Sudan. Together with theoretical elements published elsewhere, this paper builds the prosecution's case as an example of the type of litigation that should be undertaken as a complement to civil liability for corporate wrongdoing.
