INTRODUCTION

Section 17A introduces a new statutory corporate liability offence of corruption by a commercial organisation under Malaysian law. The section deems any director, controller, officer, partner or who is concerned in the management of the affairs of a commercial organisation to be personally liable for the same offence if the commercial organisation is found liable.

Scope of Liability Section 17A(1) states that a commercial organisation commits an offence if a person associated with it corruptly gives, offers or promises any gratification to any person with an intent to obtain or retain business or a business advantage for the said commercial organisation.

The burden of proof then lies on the commercial organization to prove to the Court that adequate procedures were communicated, implemented and enforced effectively within the commercial organization to prevent associated person(s) from committing an act of corruption.

Upon conviction under Section 17A of the MACC Act 2009, a commercial organization may be liable to a fine of not less than ten (10) times the value of the gratification in question or RM1,000,000.00, whichever is higher, or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding twenty (20) years, or to both.
