Malum Prohibitum

(n) Malum Prohibitum are the activities which are considered as crime by their specific introduction or defining in the statute as a crime. For example white collar crimes are not an apparent crime by its nature if we evaluate it with our conventional yardstick of identifying a criminal activity. But it is crime by Malum Prohibitum. Home
