Tim Belevetz, a partner in Ice Miller’s White Collar Criminal Defense and Investigations Practice, co-authored a chapter in the recently published From Baksheesh to Bribery: Understanding the Global Fight Against Corruption and Graft.

From the U.S. Foreign Corruption Act to the U.K. Bribery Act and beyond, governmental anti-corruption efforts have been ramping up globally. From Baksheesh to Bribery offers a country-by-country survey of anti-corruption laws and enforcement practices with a comprehensive analysis of the Justice Department’s enforcement approach to global corruption and practitioner-focused how-to modules to inform practitioners, in-house counsel, compliance personnel, academics and others about the varying perspectives on corruption and how to fight it.

Tim co-authored the chapter on Cuba, which examines the country’s anti-corruption legal regime. While high-level corruption on a large scale is less common in Cuba than in other parts of the world, including elsewhere in Latin America, lower-level corruption is widespread. Over the years, the long-ruling Castro regime has taken a number of approaches to curbing corruption that are incorporated into the Cuban Penal Code. In the chapter, Tim analyzes those laws, including the conduct that forms the basis of an offense and the associated penalties, Cuba’s participation in international anti-corruption conventions and privacy and data protections, and forecasts the prospects for additional reform.
