Criminilization

Bribery offences relating to the domestic public sector are traditionally one of the core features of national criminal law. Accordingly, all States parties have adopted measures to criminalize both the active and passive bribery of domestic public officials, in most cases long before the Convention came into force. Nonetheless, a number of challenges have been encountered by States parties in the criminalization of these offences.
