Globally speaking, there is a drive against bribery and corruption, resulting in numerous anti-bribery laws and statutes. This surge in campaign against corruption and bribery is mainly due to efforts to put a lid on channelization of black money into other criminal offences especially terrorism financing. This offence mostly transcends national boundaries and multiple international laws and enforcement agencies are working to protect businesses from such practices. UK Bribery Act and US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act are some of the international efforts by countries to control corruption. Considerable drive has been observed in UAE as well regarding this matter, though anti-bribery and corruption laws are prevailing here since 80s but recently a dedicated new anti-corruption unit within Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority.
