AbstractIn a majority of six to one, the High Court in Moti v The Queen concluded that the act of state doctrine does not preclude findings as to the legality of the conduct of a foreign government, where such a finding is determinative of an abuse of process. The decision is a welcome addition to existing international jurisprudence on due process rights in prosecutions of extraterritorial conduct. In turn, it is a reminder that operating extraterritorially does not mean operating without accountability.
