Personal liability and corporate liability under new Penal Code
On June 20, 2017, the National Assembly passed the revised Penal Code. It became effective on January 1, 2018. Several significant changes have occurred. Several acts, previously criminal, are no longer punishable. On the other hand, several previously innocent acts have been criminalized. One very large change is that an enterprise-not just an individual-may now be guilty of a crime1.
New Railway Law
Coming into force from July next year, the 2017 Railway Law, passed by the National Assembly in June, prescribes railway infrastructure planning, investment, construction, protection, management, maintenance and development. It also stipulates railway industry and railway business.
