Crimes Against Humanity

Definition

Particularly grievous offenses that constitute a serious attack on humanity, grave humiliation, or a degradation of one or more human beings. They are not isolated or sporadic events, but are part of either a government policy or a widespread practice of atrocities tolerated or condoned by a government or other authority. Murder, genocide, torture, rape, or political, racial, or religious persecution or other inhumane acts may constitute “crimes against humanity” if they are part of a widespread systematic practice.
