“Court may not have jurisdiction in international bribery case” by Staff, AdvocateDaily

AdvocateDaily quotes Toronto lawyer, Norm Keith in an article regarding a Canadian court’s lack of jurisdiction to convict a man for international bribery conspiracy due to a law absent in Canada’s legislation.

“But the point I argued is that the CFPOA when he was charged specifically provided only for prosecution if a substantial portion of the essential elements were committed inside Canadian territory,” he says. “In fact was one of several points listed in the original international agreements which aimed to create a cohesive global network of anti-bribery laws, but in Canaa, it was never included in the legislation.”

The evidence clearly showed otherwise, says Keith.
