Alex Haines and Jeremy Scott-Joynt instructed in International Monetary Fund Administrative Tribunal

Alex Haines and Jeremy Scott-Joynt are instructed in a case involving the criteria for reclassification from Economist to Financial Sector Expert for an international civil servant before the International Monetary Fund Administrative Tribunal (IMFAT) in Washington DC. The case deals not only with the personal consequences of the IMF’s decision for the Applicant, but also with the novel issue of whether a regulatory gap – in this case the lack of formal criteria (being in fact unpublished, undisclosed and rarely applied) – is within the IMFAT’s jurisdiction. The International Monetary Fund (IMF), having been conceived in July 1944 at the Bretton Woods Conference in New Hampshire, formally came into existence on 27th December 1945 when its first 29 member countries signed its…

Fiona Horlick QC and Jeremy Scott-Joynt write for the Public Sector Counter Fraud Journal

Fiona Horlick QC and Jeremy Scott-Joynt contributed to Issue 7 of the Public Sector Counter Fraud Journal with their article titled “What we tell ourselves: how stories can encourage bribery – and prevent it?” Fiona and Jeremy consider the Bribery Act and the proper test of what’s improper or not according to Sections 4 and 5 of the Bribery Act. The article analyses how the types of conduct under examination could breach a “relevant expectation” about how the duty in question should be performed; and the definition of “what a reasonable person in the UK would expect in relation to the performance of the type of function or activity concerned”. This issue also contains articles from the Centre for the…

Anti-corruption enforcement: The UK’s journey from basket-case to the Bribery Act

Jeremy Scott-Joynt authored the first chapter of Lissack and Horlick on Bribery and Corruption. Jeremy has summarised his chapter on the UK’s history of anti-corruption enforcement as part of a serialisation of the chapters that members of Outer Temple contributed to the publication. Corruption is universal. Human beings striving for advantage have always sought it by suborning the servants of their rivals. No group or nation is immune, and the UK is no exception. Its history is replete with examples, from rotten boroughs and army commissions bought and sold to Rachmanism and parliamentary sleaze. In typical English fashion, though, the enforcement framework confronting what has, at times, been endemic bribery and corruption had until 2010 developed piecemeal, through a tattered…

Publication of the Third edition of Lissack and Horlick on Bribery and Corruption

We are delighted to announce that the Third edition of Lissack and Horlick on Bribery and Corruption has been published by LexisNexis Butterworths. The practitioner’s book was edited by Fiona Horlick QC and Richard Lissack QC, and was contributed to by a number of Outer Temple members. In 2010, the UK’s law on bribery changed from a collection of ancient statutes, distorted in some cases by contradictory authority, to a single statute often regarded as one of the most rigorous, and wide-ranging in application, in the world. Since coming into force in 2011, numerous prosecutions were brought on the basis of the Bribery Act as well as five of the eight deferred prosecution agreements reached in the UK to date. It…

How can corporates manage bribery risk as they fight to survive COVID-19

As the lockdown persists and businesses become more desperate, Fiona Horlick QC and Jeremy Scott-Joynt look at why this could mean more corporate bribery and corruption. With spare bedrooms or kitchen table corners continuing to do double duty as office space, many businesses – particularly those whose trade has shrunk – will be aching for a return to normality. However, normal may not return for a long time. Supply chains may shorten. Working practices may change. Long-settled business relationships may be sundered as partners may have ceased to trade. Battered businesses will be desperate for new deals as they seek to keep their staff working. In other words, it’s a perfect time to bribe someone – and the ultimate test…

Jeremy Scott-Joynt successful in defeating £550,000 account freezing order

Jeremy Scott-Joynt has secured the release of more than half a million pounds in a client’s UK bank account frozen by HM Revenue and Customs (“HMRC”). In late 2019, HMRC had successfully applied (without notice, as is usual) to a magistrate’s court for an Account Freezing Order (“AFO”) over the account, which contained some £550,000. Once the client had been notified that the AFO was in place, his solicitors contacted Jeremy for help. Full details of the AFO regime can be found in this article by Outer Temple’s Oliver Powell and others. In short, AFOs are a relatively new weapon in law enforcement’s AML armoury, having been added to the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (Part 5, Chapter 3B, sections…
