A post from the always-useful FCPA Blog on 9 December starts by saying that, on the face of it, the section 7 “Failure to prevent bribery” corporate offence under the Bribery Act 2010 extends to bribes paid where there is some kind of UK nexus and so has a potentially broad reach. But it asks how broad is “broad”? The post suggests that great care should be taken to understand first whether the alleged bribe truly falls within the jurisdiction of section 7 because it has been paid with the intention of benefiting a company which itself is doing business in the UK.
I had omitted the following link (as it did not seem to generate much interest!), but it seemed time to add it again and say that, if you would like to make a (polite) gesture and help me with my removal and computer costs, I have a page at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
