In a 2012 message to his city explaining his “Naked Project,” Park summed up his philosophy: “I have always believed that transparency is at the core of anticorruption (initiatives), serving as a barometer of the level of civilization in a country. The more transparent a society is, the more advanced it is. Transparency and accountability are important as we make an effort to join the ranks of the world’s most advanced societies.”

UK Anti-Corruption Efforts Are Getting Serious

UK Anti-Corruption Efforts Are Getting Serious | Compliance - Gifts and Entertainment | Scoop.it

Next week, three executives and a financial advisor from Sustainable AgroEnergy will appear before the Westminster Magistrates Court in London. The four men are the first individuals charged in an international case under the UK Bribery Act, the country’s two-year-old anti-corruption law. They are not likely to be the last. Reports suggest the Serious Fraud Office and the City of London police, the agencies responsible for enforcing the law, are investigating up to 25 additional cases.

Just as Bribery Act enforcement begins to hit its stride, the government is preparing to provide prosecutors with new tools: deferred prosecution agreements and sentencing guidelines. Both new mechanisms are intended to will provide greater clarity and predictability in future prosecutions.

Deferred prosecution agreements allow companies to admit wrongdoing as part of a negotiation to suspend a criminal investigation. Such agreements are common in the USenforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and the US experience will serve as a model for the UK approach. The details are still being ironed out, but the a draft of the code conveys the basics: any company that enters into such an agreement must still pay a hefty fine, implement tough compliance measures, and agree to external monitoring of compliance efforts.  Should a company fail to sufficiently implement the compliance measures, the suspension will be lifted and the prosecution for the original offense will proceed. Moreover, deferred prosecution agreements may not be offered to all companies, depending on the severity of the offense and the promptness of the company’s disclosure.
