Abstract

This article discusses the legal regime on anticorruption in the Commonwealth Caribbean, including the common law rules on bribery and misconduct in public office, the tort of misfeasance in public office, judicial misconduct, and anticorruption legislation. The article concludes that the common law offences on bribery and misconduct in public office are still useful to the developing anticorruption project.
