Recent amendments to the Organic Act on Counter Corruption, B. E. 2542 ( the Organic Act) have expanded the scope of Thai anti- corruption laws ( the Amendments). The provisions of the Amendments that are most important or have received the most press concern are: ( 1) application of the Organic Act to “Foreign Officials” ( a defined term); ( 2) provisions that essentially impose strict liability on companies for corrupt acts of “associated persons” of that company; and ( 3) the expansion of the death penalty as a sanction for participating in corrupt acts.
