Resumen

MONTIEL, Juan Pablo. Purpose and Scope of Internal Investigations in Companies. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2013, n.40, pp.251-277. ISSN 0718-6851.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512013000100008.

Within a context of remarkable expansion of the criminal compliance phenomenon, internal investigations seem to be the matters less dealt with, from a practical and scientific point of view. However, the interest of the doctrine has remarkably increased within the last years as a result of its potential importance in the attenuating circumstances and exclusion of criminal liability. This work is an approximate general introduction with a conceptual delimitation of the internal investigations (to differentiate them from other similar mechanisms, e.g. company control measures) and its most troublesome matters are analyzed within criminal and criminal procedural Law. Among these, if the businessperson is forced to implement these "self-cleaning" procedures, the question is when and if principle nemo tenetur se ipsum accusare is applicable in this scenario.

Palabras clave : Internal investigations; Pre-judicial internal investigations; Para-judicial internal investigations; Duty to investigate; Nemo tenetur se ipsum accusare; Suspicion levels; Company procedural-criminal ordinance.
