The tenth anniversary of the Bribery Act passing into UK law led Rahman Ravelli’s Aziz Rahman to pen an article examining its effectiveness.
In his article, Aziz considers whether the Act, which is viewed as the gold standard of such legislation, has achieved what its supporters hoped. He looks at the convictions achieved under it but also emphasises the Act’s value in making the importance of compliance clear to companies.
Criticism of the Act is assessed by Aziz, who details the scope of the Act and its international reach. Aziz also outlines the main findings of the House of Lords Select Committee that went to great lengths to analyse all aspects of the Act.
Aziz's article featured on Security Matter and can be read here.
