Article summary

This week’s edition of Corporate Crime highlights includes analysis of the proposals made at UK and EU level to regulate in the virtual currency/crypotcurrency sphere, the reinstatement of sanctions on Iran by the US administration and the adoption by the Council of the EU of the new regulation on the mutual recognition of freezing and confiscation orders. We also highlight figures which suggest that data breach fines have doubled since the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), along with the Information Commissioner’s Office’s (ICO) fine in respect of Brexit data misuse. The latest draft Brexit SIs (relevant to Corporate Crime), considered through the Parliamentary sifting process, are covered, together with the formal launching by the Government of the National Economic Crime Centre (NECC) and the publishing of digital sentencing guidelines in the Crown Court. We also look at new Department for Transport (DfT) guidance on determining International Road Haulage Permit allocations and the Lord Advocate’s evidence to the House of Lords Bribery Act 2010 (BA 2010) Select Committee among other stories. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
