esp in light of the FIFA/World Cup debacle?

Um - it is, in the UK anyway for businesses

It is in business but I reserve the right to occasionally use chocolate buttons with my children!

Is it though? Under what area of law? and what statute? I always thought that bribery was down to the individual organisation to deal with.

it is illegal, I think. here

ah so maybe it is. How come the FIFA officials get away with it. Assume it is because they are in a juresdiction where it is not illegal?

Um, yes, YABU to want bribery to be made illegal - how else will I get DD to tidy her bedroom if not for telling her she won't get any pocket money if she leaves it messy. grin

(I know that's not what you meant!)
