Acción típica, antijuridica y punible


New Member
Hello! I'm looking for a good English translation of the phrase, "Acción típica, antijurídica y punible". I am translating an arrest warrant from Guatemala and can't find a good English equivalent for the legal meaning of "acción típica". It seems to mean an action conforming to a description of criminal actions as written and codified by law.

But what is the legal term in English?

    “Tipicidad” refers to conduct meeting the legal definition of the crime in question.
    “Antijuridica” means unlawful
    “Punible” means sanctionable or punishable.
