Bribery – Out with the Old, In with the New!

Ireland has adopted its latest Corruption Act. As well as updating the existing bribery offences, the new Act provides for several new corruption offences.  Perhaps most significantly it also provides that, in certain circumstances, bodies corporate will be held liable for corruption offences committed by their staff, agents or subsidiaries, where they failed to take reasonable steps to avoid the commission of the relevant offence.
