Problem

Records destruction by transnational enterprises

Other Names:
Missing documents and data of transnational corporations
Nature:
Home country record retention requirements may not apply to activities of subsidiaries, and local authorities needs may be less defined or stringent. In these cases enterprises may not have available, whether destroyed or concealed, details of past international dealings. During litigations, defendants may claim record destruction, as penalties may be lighter for this than for other infringements of the law that may appear from incriminating evidence.
Problem Type:
E: Emanations of other problems
