The International Bar Association (IBA) has chosen to publish an article by Rahman Ravelli’s Aziz Rahman about the Airbus settlement.
The piece written by Aziz, who is Senior Partner at Rahman Ravelli, examines the amount of international co-operation that was involved in concluding the settlement; which saw the aircraft manufacturer agreeing to pay €3.6 billion.
With the settlement meaning that Airbus will not be prosecuted over its use of bribery to secure contracts, Aziz’s article considers why such agreements are becoming increasingly popular. It pays particular attention to deferred prosecution agreements - including how they are being viewed as an important tool in the battle against corporate crime - and outlines the countries that are looking to use them.
The article is being published in the IBA’s e-bulletin, which goes out to its members worldwide and can be read here. (Subscription required).
