The talk started with a brief discussion on Corruption- a menace in business and political life. Lord Goldsmith explained that to find an effective solution, United Kingdom has formulated a system, wherein there are Agreements between Companies/Corporations at fault and the victims, particularly known as the Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA), very similar to Non-Prosecution Agreements. It is a voluntary alternative to adjudication in which a prosecutor agrees to grant amnesty in exchange for the defendant agreeing to fulfill certain requirements, which entails providing financial compensation, reparations, and/or promising to not indulge in such harming activities ever again in the future.
