●Australian companies will be held responsible for bribery committed by employees and contractors under new laws introduced on Wednesday  aimed at combating corporate crime that costs the country billions of dollars a year.

根據6日提出的新法,澳洲企業將必須為旗下員工和包商的賄賂負責,此法旨在打擊令澳洲每年損失數十億美元的企業犯罪。

●Modelled on regimes already in place in Britain and the United States that have helped transform business culture, the legislation will also provide incentives for firms to come forward and work with government agencies.

這項立法借鏡英國和美國已實施、有助企業文化轉型的制度,也提供誘因,讓公司行號挺身而出並與政府機關合作。

●"Corporate crime is estimated to cost Australia more than A$8.5 billion (US$6.5 billion) each year," Justice Minister Michael Keenan said in introducing the changes.

司法部長基南介紹這項變革時說:「企業犯罪估計讓澳洲年損逾85億澳元(約65億美元)。」

●"It hurts our businesses, hinders economic growth and jeopardises Australia's international reputation." Keenan said the reforms make investigating and prosecuting offenders simpler while strengthening offences for companies operating offshore.

基南說:「它傷害我們的企業、阻礙經濟成長,並且危及澳洲國際聲望。」他指出,此一改革令調查和起訴違法犯紀者較簡單,同時強化規範境外營運的企業。

●A new crime of failing to prevent foreign bribery will be created and amendments made to broaden existing foreign bribery laws.

未來將立新法,未能防範海外賄賂也屬犯罪,並將增修現行海外賄賂防制法。
