Article summary

This week's edition of Corporate Crime weekly highlights continues to focus on the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) with analysis of remote working in the criminal courts due to COVID-19, the new police powers in Scotland resulting from emergency powers contained in the Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Restrictions) (Scotland) Regulations 2020 and the Coronavirus Act 2020 (CA 2020) and how COVID-19 is affecting DOJ’s US white collar enforcement. We include a summary of the latest position in relation to the criminal courts and prisons in England and Wales and how regulators are adapting their processes, procedures and guidance. In other news, we have a three part analysis of the Barclays Qatar fraud case, which provides in-depth analysis of the failed prosecution and explores the failed basis for corporate liability. We also analyse the High Court’s ruling that a food business operator which places food passed its used by label on the market, is in breach of Article 14 of the EU Food Safety Regulation and is guilty of an offence under the Food Safety and Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013, as well as the decision of the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI) to fine Standard Chartered £20.5m breaching EU sanctions laws and what this may indicate about trends in sanctions compliance and enforcement generally. All this, and more, in this week’s Corporate Crime highlights. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
