TINZ Chair, Suzanne Snively and Director, Daniel King Waiting to Appear Before the Law and Order Select Committee on the Crimes Bill

On 11 March, 2015, TINZ Directors, Daniel King and Suzanne Snively, presented before Parliament’s Law and Order Select Committee Regarding the Organised Crime and Anti-corruption Legislation Bill.

TINZ was one of the few submittors invited at short notice by the committee to appear before it.

The Select Committee’s interest and response left TINZ cautiously optimisticthat it was open to strengthening the legislation in regard to facilitation payments. TINZ was asked to provide specific wording for the Committee to consider when revising the Bill and to compare the recommended wording with the UK Bribery Act and the Canadian legislation. Committee members were also interested in what the US and Australia are doing.
