UK Law Commission Report on Bribery

The Law Commission in the United Kingdom has just released its final report on bribery. It is the result of consultations launched in November 2007.

The report proposes getting rid of the existing legislative patchwork by creating two general offences of bribery (one dealing with the payer and the other dealing with the recipient), and one specific offence of bribing a foreign public official.

In addition, there will be a new corporate offence of negligently failing to prevent bribery by an employee or agent.
