The Mike Duffy saga continues... After months of investigation the RCMP have criminally charged suspended Senator, Mike Duffy, with governmental fraud and bribery, and plenty of other no-no's relating to Senate expenses. And opposition leaders say Prime Minister Stephen Harper's poor judgement is to blame.
The UK chapter of Transparency International recently released a handbook focusing on the culture of bribes. Entitled “How To Bribe: A Typology of Bribe-Paying and How to Stop It”, the report outlines the bribery culture within corporations and how to combat it. It stresses that bribery is a rampant issue, and is just as prevalent in the US and UK as it is overseas. Therefore, companies should view clearly-defined bribery policies as an integral part of their overall ethics and compliance program.
