BBC | BBC College of Journalism Blog - The long arm of the bribery law

What happens when you, as a journalist, are covering a foreign story and need to make arrangements to gain access to a local official/politician/location or similar?
In many parts of the world it is normal practice to engage a local 'fixer', someone familiar with the local environment or administrative set-up, to use their contacts and local knowledge to ease your path.
Clearly, if somebody provides that service for you it is only right that you pay a reasonable fee for it.
No problem so far.
But what happens when your fixer says they can make the local bureaucratic wheels turn faster - and you can meet your deadline - if they make a payment or other 'consideration' of some kind to a third party who is in a position to expedite your request.
It is in situations like this that a journalist, and their employer, can fall foul of the new UK Bribery Act.
