The fifth edition of the detailed and expansive guide, Bribery and Corruption, provides a continuing update on the latest developments of bribery and corruption law in Hong Kong. Although Hong Kong consistently ranks as one of the least corrupt cities in the world, the jurisprudence relating to the common law offence of misconduct in public office continues to grow as the offence is more frequently employed by prosecutors against abuses of their office by public servants not involving bribery. Recent legislative developments and case law that further define the parameters of the offence are discussed. Furthermore, as a practical tool for legal professionals, the Prevention of Bribery Ordinance (Cap 201) and the Independent Commission Against Corruption Ordinance (Cap 204) are included.
