UK talks anti-corruption

Deputy Prime Minister Sok An met with a representative from the British Embassy on Tuesday to discuss new anti-corruption legislation in the United Kingdom. Lesley Saunderson, deputy head of mission for the embassy in Phnom Penh, said yesterday she met with Sok An to brief him on the UK’s Bribery Act, which was passed last year and will enter into force on July 1. The law establishes a distinct offence for the bribery of foreign public officials, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine, as well as a new offence for the failure of a business to prevent a bribe being paid on its behalf, punishable by a fine only.
