Immunity of States, Officials and IGOs

Immunity of States, Officials and IGOs

How to define “act(s) performed in an official capacity” is certainly one of the most difficult and important aspects of governance. In other words ensuring that an elected or appointed government official works within the parameters of his powers while enjoying the immunity that accrues to his office is a task which requires exclusive understanding. Both locally and internationally, there are several acts performed in an official capacity which could amount to crimes, while some of these acts are protected by immunity while in office or/and after leaving office.
