[mappress]Offshore Energy Today Staff, May 20, 2014 China is withdrawing its citizens from Vietnam, following last week’s clashes and riots which saw several foreign factories torched by Vietnamese workers protesting against CNOOC’s deployment of an offshore rig in the contested area of the South China Sea.Starting from May 17, the Chinese side has organized chartered planes and ships to Vietnam to bring back Chinese citizens. A chartered plane with medical facilities onboard and China Southern Airlines flights have taken back 307 people affected in the violent acts in Ha Tinh province, including all those injured.Four ferries namely Wuzhishan, Tongguling, Zijing 12 and Baishiling under the coordination of the transportation authorities were to pick up around 4,000 Chinese citizens at Vung Ang port of Ha Tinh province yesterday. The four ferries all arrived at the port yesterday to pick up Chinese citizens.During this period of time, the cross-sectoral working group sent by the Chinese government and Chinese diplomatic and consular missions in Vietnam have made proactive efforts in Hanoi, Ha Tinh and other places to ensure that Chinese citizens come back home safe and sound, a press release on the China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ websiteSome Chinese citizens headed to Cambodia in recent days to seek safety.“China appreciates the Cambodian side for offering convenience and assistance to those Chinese citizens. The Chinese embassy in Cambodia also attends to them,” the ministry said in the release.China has raised the level of its travel warning for Chinese citizens to go to Vietnam, advising them not to go there for the time being and has suspended some of the bilateral exchange plans. China said it would consider taking further steps depending on how the situation plays out.Vietnam: Situation stableIn a statement made on Saturday, May 17, Vietnam Foreign Affairs Ministry said the situation in provinces where the incidents occurred is now stabilized and under control.“The safety, life and property of foreigners are guaranteed. Almost all Vietnamese and foreign enterprises have returned to normal production and business,” Dang Minh Khoi, Foreign Minister’s Assistant said.“The government of Vietnam will not allow any act of sabotage targeting foreign enterprises and staff, and will strictly handle violations, punish the troublemakers, and ensure that such regrettable incidents will not reoccur,” Dang Minh Khoi added.He maintained Vietnam would defend its sovereignty and asked China to remove the HYSY 981 rig from what Vietnam claims to be Vietnamese territorial waters in the South China Sea. China, however, says it is operating in its own continental shelf.One person was reported killed during the anti-China protests last Tuesday and Wednesday, but according to Reuters the number could be as twenty one dead and a hundred wounded.
The justice secretary has moved to reassure ‘honest’ businesses that they will not need to spend ‘millions’ on new systems to comply with the Bribery Act, whatever they may have been told by advisers. Ken Clarke told parliament that lawyers and consultants ‘will, of course, try to persuade companies that millions of pounds must be spent on new systems that, in my opinion, no honest firm will require to comply with the act’. He said that he will put out ‘very clear guidance’ to help businesses ‘save’ themselves from these advances. Clarke stressed that there will be no watering down of the act, and that the guidance, which the Ministry of Justice is working on, will make clear the boundaries of legitimate company promotion. The Bribery Act introduces a corporate offence of failing to prevent bribery, under which company executives could face personal criminal liability if found to have connived or consented to offering or receiving a bribe. Companies will have a defence if they can show they had adequate procedures in place to prevent bribery. The guidance on the act will advise businesses on what steps they should take to ensure that they are trying to prevent bribery. It was due to be published in January, with the act itself planned to come into force in April, but implementation was delayed amid concerns from business lobbies over the clarity of the legislation. The MoJ said that the act will come into force three months after the guidance is published. Clarke said: ‘I believe that it is possible to produce guidance and enforce the act in a way that produces rigour and fairness. ‘There is no backing down from the principles of the act at all. ‘The guidance must make it absolutely clear that ordinary, legitimate promotion – hospitality and similar activities in which people engage in order to project the quality of their company and its products or services, and to establish personal relationships with clients and customers – is all part of international trade. ‘The [act] can be used to tackle corruption without damaging British business at a time of, we hope, revival in our international trade.’
