The Bribery Act 2010 was introduced into UK law with cross-party support in Parliament, after literally decades of domestic debate and discussion and amid international pressure to update and improve previous 19th century legislation on bribery and corruption. For a time it appeared that little was being done to give full effect to enforcement of the new law, but now a number of successful prosecutions have been brought, including the first under the new head of “failing to prevent “ bribery.
At the same time a new regime has been introduced (with effect from 2014) for Deferred Prosecution Agreements. These follow some aspects of US practice in offering possible defendants in bribery and other cases of economic crime the opportunity to settle proceedings with prosecuting authorities before a full trial is heard, on the basis of those “defendants” being required to make potentially substantial payments being made in lieu of a trial.
In addition, consideration has been given to extending the “failure to prevent” offence to matters outside the realms of bribery.
