Vinge’s Forensic, Risk & Compliance Group assists Tele2

May 24, 2019

Tele2 has decided to leave Kazakhstan and has today published the terms and conditions governing the transaction.

In connection with the exit, Tele2 has issued the extensive report "Tele2 Kazakhstan - Exit Report on Ethics and Compliance". The Exit Report is part of Tele2’s obligation to act ethically, to fight corruption and be transparent to shareholders and the market. 
 
Vinge’s Forensic, Risk & Compliance Group has assisted Tele2 in conjunction with the company’s analysis and reporting of the anti‑corruption work which Tele2 has conducted since it arrived in Kazakhstan. In the Exit Report, Tele2 describes its method of identifying and addressing corruption risks. This method is based on Vinge’s formulated best practice – a compliance programme consisting of 10 steps which companies and organizations should implement in order to prevent bribery and corruption in their business operations. 

“It is very satisfying to work with a company which takes the risks of corruption seriously. It is not possible to prevent everything, although you can establish a framework and procedures which minimize the risk significantly”,

says Mia Falk, Head of Forensic, Risk & Compliance at Vinge.

Vinge’s team consisted of Mia Falk and Hayaat Ibrahim.

COP26 - a step in the right direction to achieve the Paris Agreement goals

On 13 November 2021, the two-week international climate summit COP26, held in Glasgow, UK, was concluded after leaders from over 190 countries agreed on a new deal, the so-called Climate Pact in Glasgow. The aim of COP26 was for leaders from around the world to agree on how to step up global action to tackle the climate crisis. The agreement, which will set the global average temperature increase at between 1.8 and 2.4 degrees Celsius, is a step towards achieving the Paris Agreement's (COP21) more ambitious target of a maximum increase of 1.5 degrees.

The EU Court of Justice dismisses Belgium’s request in Opinion 1/20, but points out that the dispute settlement mechanism of ECT is not applicable to ‘intra-EU disputes’

The Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) is under renegotiation. Its Article 26, which provides a dispute settlement mechanism, has however not been announced as being subject to such renegotiations. On 2 December 2020, Belgium submitted a request to the EU Court of Justice (CJEU) for an opinion on whether the dispute settlement mechanism of the draft ECT, assuming it remains unchanged, could be interpreted as allowing its application intra-European Union, i.e. between an EU Member State and an investor who is a national of another Member State, and whether this would be compatible with the EU Treaties, in particular Article 19 TEU on the role of the CJEU and Article 344 TFEU on the autonomy of EU law.
