    Very good question at the end of the post, Michael. But, in my opinion, that should not be even a choice, whether to worry about enforcement of an existing law occurs or not, because what happens when it is enforced to the full extent. Will any excuses by the company matter? I would not bet that the excuses would be considered.

    Thank you for this informative post.

    I’m interested in the notion that the UK Bribery Act can be used in relation to events in Indonesia and China before it came in effect.

    Is that correct?

    Hitherto I thought that comments to the effect that no serious prosecutions have been launched under the Bribery Act were misplaced. This is because I assumed that first we had to wait for new bribes to be discovered – not old bribes to which the old anti-bribery law would apply (or not apply, if the bribes were paid outside the UK before 2001).
