Bribery and Corruption is a comprehensive and in-depth overview to Hong Kong's bribery and corruption laws. As prosecutors use the common law offence of misconduct in public office increasingly frequently to prosecute public officials who abuse their authority, the law around it continues to develop. It is discussed recent case law that serves to outline the specifics of the offence. The Prevention of Bribery Ordinance (Cap 201) and the Independent Commission Against Corruption Ordinance (Cap 204) are included to make the book a more useful resource for legal professionals.
