Summary/Abstract: The importance and complexity of identifying and defining human groups under protection when there is ongoing the criminal justice procedure with the purpose of determining the crime of genocide, is emphasized in this paper. The paper also treats other aspects of protected human groups, as it represents one crucial and specific determinants of that kind of crime. In this paper the author dealt with the international judiciary’s practices whose work has largely eliminated indistinctions concerning the crudely and vaguely prescribes issues in the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG). For illustration of his standpoint, the author uses several vital examples that enable clear comprehension, understanding and interpretation of protected human groups. Different approaches referring to the identification and defining of protected human groups, as well as the critical reviewing of limitations of the concept of genocide in line with restrictively prescribed conditions are also structured through the paper.
