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.

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.
