16:01 01/02/2012

GORKI, February 1 - RAPSI. President Dmitry Medvedev said Russia has acceded to the international convention on combating the bribery of foreign public officials.

"I signed an important law yesterday. It concerns Russia's accession to the Convention on Combating the Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions," he said during a meeting on judicial system issues on Wednesday.

He noted that he had discussed the document with many international organizations. Medvedev said joining the convention "will allow for harmonizing international anti-corruption standards and our judicial system."

The president reminded that the Criminal Code and the Code of Administrative Violations were amended last April so criminal and administrative liability would apply not only to "corrupt actions proper, but also to offering and promising money or some other asset to a foreign official for certain actions to be performed by such an official."
