A post on FCPA Blog on 2nd December was concerned with a law in China preventing China-based individuals and entities (including the China-based subsidiaries of non-Chinese companies) from providing certain assistance in criminal proceedings outside of China. It explains that the International Criminal Judicial Assistance Law (ICJAL), enacted in October 2018, blocks disclosure of evidence obtained in China to criminal enforcement authorities outside of China in connection with a criminal matter, unless approved by the Chinese government. The post says that, now that the ICJAL has been in existence for a year, the authors wanted to provide an update on the development and use of the ICJAL in the US and China and discuss how multinational companies can address potential ICJAL issues.
