FRANCE ENCOURAGES CORPORATIONS TO SELF-REPORT ACTS OF CORRUPTION WITHOUT ANY GUARANTEE OF LENIENCY

On 16 June, an article from White & Case said that, on 2 June, the French ministry of Justice released a new order containing guidance-only addressed to French prosecutors on the criminal policy relating to international corruption and how such cases should be handled.  It explains how prosecutors may obtain evidence of acts of corruption perpetrated by corporations and notably encourages on the voluntary self-reporting by corporations.  The article says that self-reporting does not guarantee any particular outcome or leniency from the prosecution office. Therefore, corporations will have to carefully assess the situation before self-reporting.
