Corporate crime has become prominent in South Africa because of recent wide media coverage. Lack of research activity in this country (and many other countries) is noted. Clinard and Yeager (Hagan 1990:375) presented the first large-scale, comprehensive investigation on corporate crime (1979-1980). They conducted a systematic analysis of administrative, civil and criminal actions against 477 of the largest manufacturing corporations in the United States during 1975-76.
