Abstract

Through searching of the current situation of Vietnam’s current legal situation and learning from the experience of other countries in the world providing for criminal liability for legal entities, Vietnamese criminal law scientists have boldly building up the criminal liability regulations for commercial legal entities in Vietnam’s criminal code. On November 27, 2015, the National Assembly of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam voted to pass the amended Criminal Code that takes effect from January 1, 2018. The introduction of the Criminal Code in 2015 marked a breakthrough development in Vietnam’s criminal policy and legislative thinking. For the first time in the history of criminal legislation, the Criminal Code provides for the criminal liability of commercial legal entities in chapter XI with 33 specific offenses.
