Hello. Have just sat an exam in Scottish Criminal Law. Could you please tell me, in the following question, what Law is being referred to-Omission or Art & Part Liability? Thank you. Jessica.

Question-Explain the circumstances that would lead to anperson's conviction for a crime that they did not, themselves, directly commit.
Thank you for your question.

Omission is a direct commission of a crime as you have not done something, eg, report an instance of money laundering or terrorism.

However, art and part is where you might not do the crime but as you are part of the group you are deemed to have committed the crime so the answer to your question is art and part.

Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
