Mark Warby QC speaks at the Asian Racing Conference

Amongst speakers calling for international cooperation against corruption

5RB’s joint head of Chambers Mark Warby QC spoke at the 35th Asian Racing Conference in Hong Kong last week. Speaking to a plenary session entitled ‘Sport Integrity: racing as the frontrunner’, Mark shared his extensive experience of cases conducted on behalf of the British Horseracing Authority. He also, together with other high profile speakers at the conference, called for international cooperation in order to tackle corruption in sport: “Of course, Britain is only part of a much bigger picture. There is a fight against integrity threats worldwide. We must look to harmonisation of approach and the rules that apply, collaboration between different regulatory bodies and recognition that worldwide threats need a global response.”
