‘Bribery Reforms: Professor Peter Alldridge interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Law in Action’
Professor Peter Alldridge, financial crime specialist and Head of the Department of Law, was interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Law in Action’ programme on Tuesday 9 March 2010.
The programme considered the Bribery Bill, currently before Parliament, in the light of the recent decision by the Director of the SFO to enter into a plea bargain with BAE systems, under which BAE plan to plead guilty to a regulatory offence but not to bribery. Will reform lead to more successful prosecutions?
Professor Peter Alldridge was specialist advisor to the Joint Parliamentary Committee on the Draft Bribery Bill – the pre-legislative scrutiny phase in respect of this Bill – in the summer of 2009.
