A company publically announced the first case in which a plea bargain was used. Plea bargains were introduced by the Amendment to the Code of Criminal Procedure (please see the June 2016 issue and April 2018 issue of this newsletter). In this case, the company was notified by a whistleblower of its employees having bribed foreign officials. The company reported the bribes to authorities, cooperated with the investigation, and eventually entered into a plea bargain.
