This week's edition of Corporate Crime weekly highlights includes analysis of changes to food safety and hygiene laws at the end of the Brexit transition period, a warning from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) that a post-Brexit transition data adequacy decision from the EU is not guaranteed and a revisited analysis of retained EU law. We also include details of the latest EU Exit legislation in preparation for the end of the Brexit transition period in 15 days time. In addition, we have analysis of the Court of Appeal’s multifaceted judgment in R v Bermingham, which considered appeals, jury trials, indictments, and the conspiracy to defraud offence. The largest fine to ever be ordered by a court in relation to a wildlife crime is also covered, alongside a £25m Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) fine for Barclays due to its treatment of customers in financial difficulty, and the largest fine to ever be ordered by a court against a company in relation to a wildlife crime. In addition, we have the usual round-up of key news and developments relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic including a High Court judgment on applications to extend custody time limits in light of COVID-19.
