What is the review about?

The Corporate Services Scrutiny Panel is undertaking a short review of a new law which would protect public authorities from claims of costs when they act at the request of other jurisdictions.

 

The law would protect public authorities such as the Attorney General, Comptroller of Taxes and the Channel Island Competition and Regulatory Authority from cost claims where they act in good faith to assist other jurisdictions by conducting searches,  obtaining evidence or information or obtaining assets.

 

The draft law, called the Draft International Co-operation (Protection from Liability)(Jersey) Law is due to be debated by the States Assembly on 10th July.
