The paper, therefore, addressed the differences as it relates to corporate fraud, together with the dialectics of the management of the evidential burden in litigation. The doctrinaire method of research was used in the course of this paper. On the other hand, comparative analysis shall be employed. The paper posited that the standard of evidential proof required is too high and recommended amendment of the extant law to reduce the high threshold of proving evidential burden in corporate fraud.
