Impunity in international law is defined as exemption from punishment for committing human rights violations. Criminal negligence is becoming a deep concern in non-governmental organizations in the global arena, forcing them to attempt to bring human rights violators to justice. Hence, many non-governmental organizations in the world pay special attention to the prosecution of human rights violators, and try to push governments and international organizations to chase and pursue the perpetrators, without any regards to the perpetrators’ political status. These concerns and efforts have also led to the formation of international coalitions under the rules of international law.
