Article summary

This week’s edition of Corporate Crime highlights includes analysis of no-deal Brexit implications for the manufacture and supply of harmonised goods, the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) losing its bid to revive charges against Barclays for its alleged fundraising in Qatar during the financial crisis, how the recent Pret a Manger food labelling inquest case has put food ‘pre-packed for direct sale’ in the spotlight and a recent case on the importance of carefully considering whether to make bad character applications. The latest draft Brexit SI’s relevant to Corporate Crime considered through the Parliamentary sifting process are covered, together with the publication of draft Competition legislation making provision for the transition to a standalone UK competition regime in case of a no-deal Brexit. The implementation of the updated Code for Crown Prosecutors and charges against a pharmaceutical company for health and safety failings are also highlighted, along with the largest fine and first custodial sentence imposed following a prosecution by The Pensions Regulator (TPR). We also look at the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA’s) preparations for Brexit and a speech by the US Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General speech on corporate enforcement in the US. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
