In 2016, the Structured Criminal Settlements Subcommittee (SCSS) of the IBA Anti-Corruption Committee commenced a two-year project entitled, ‘Towards Global Standards in Structured Settlements for Corruption Offences.’ The objective of this project was to map the evolving settlement practices for corruption cases of countries across the globe. Reports based on a distributed questionnaire have been submitted by country researchers from 66 countries from Africa, the Far East, the Middle East, North, Central and South America, and Western and Eastern Europe. These reports provide an up-to-date and comparative overview of salient issues relating to structured settlements for corruption offences. The publication has also been accepted as material to be considered by the members of the OECD Working Group on Bribery (WGB) at their upcoming 2018 Consultation.

The Lithuanian report was prepared by Sorainen counsel Darius Raulušaitis. The publication can be found here.
