PSSSST! Bribes are as Bad as a Bored Baboon Banging a Bin Bellicosely (if you’ve ever heard that happen, you’ll know how bad it is!)
That’s why we have the following statement about them:
Within the game there is the option to pay a ‘Bribe’ and take a bribe card. This mechanic exists in the game to address an important topic and educate players about the dangers and harms caused by corruption. It does NOT condone or encourage the payment of bribes in real life. Please note that Tunza Games Ltd and all of the charities we support take a zero tolerance approach to bribery and are totally AGAINST the payment or receipt of bribes in any form.
Corruption and bribery are criminal offences under current UK legislation. In accordance with the current provisions of the Bribery Act 2010 It is illegal to offer, promise, give, request, agree receive or accept bribes. It is also illegal to give, promise to give, or offer a gift or hospitality with the expectation or hope that a business advantage will be received or to reward a business advantage already given. All businesses should be conducted in an honest and ethical manner and should be committed to act professionally, fairly and with integrity in all relationships and dealings. All businesses should implement and enforce effective systems to counter bribery. Bribery and corruption are punishable for individuals by up to ten years' imprisonment and an unlimited fine. It is also now an offence for an organisation to fail to prevent bribery. There are a whole raft of penalties and fines applicable to an organisation and its senior officers if found to have breached the provisions of the Bribery Act 2010.
