Letter from England


Earlier this week I had the opportunity to sit down and lunch with Barry Vitou and Richard Kovalevsky, QC, authors of the website, thebriberyact.com. A great time was certainly had by all and in honor of their website and the venue; I enjoyed a fine meal of fish and chips.

The two are a great pair, with Barry a solicitor and Richard a barrister (hence the omnipresent ‘QC’ after his name). One of the things I was interested in was how these two came to the field of anti-corruption and how they came to start up such a focused, and maintain what I believe to be the best, and comprehensive website for information on the UK Bribery Act; and other anti-bribery and anti-corruption news across the globe. Back in 2009 they began to follow the legislative meanderings for the Bribery Act and decided to start a website to highlight on the legislation and bring commentary and analysis to the Bribery Bill as it worked its way through Parliament and to the Bribery Act after it received its Royal Assent.
