Report No. 33
38. Partly true cases.-
It should be made clear, that we are not thinking of a totally false story1 or of a totally true story. We are thinking of a case where some of the ingredients of bribery are established, but not all. This is a material consideration, because it is not enough that the person 'reporting an "offence" bona fide thinks that he is discharging a duty2.
