A mere solicitation should not provide a defence to bribery. Extortion and coercion, on the other hand, are generally accepted as full defences or mitigating factors at sentencing. In many jurisdictions, these are defences or sentencing factors of general application. However, two members of the Initiative (Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan) have enacted extortion defences that apply specifically to bribery. The Penal Codes of Bangladesh and Pakistan also provide coercion defences specific to bribery, exculpating a person who was “induced, compelled, coerced, or intimidated to offer or give” a bribe.
An investigation could also require documents involving multiple accounts at multiple financial institutions, thus multiplying the volume of evidence. The collection of financial information can thus be a lengthy and resource-intensive process. Though widely available, search warrants may not be the best means for gathering documentation from financial institutions. A warrant allows law enforcement officials to enter premises and seize evidence physically. Such extraordinary powers are usually not necessary for financial institutions, since they are generally co-operative with the authorities.
In some members of the Initiative, a conviction for bribery can result in bans from engaging in other types of activities. In Fiji and Hong Kong, China, a person convicted of bribery may also be banned from being a company director. Cambodia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia and the Philippines may also ban individuals from engaging in certain professional activities, though the statutes do not always clearly specify precisely what types of activities may be subject to the ban. Administrative sanctions directed at bribers are much less common in Asia-Pacific.
