UK: Supreme Court judgment in FHR - bribes are held on trust (and subject to a proprietary claim)

The Supreme Court gave judgment earlier today in FHR European Ventures LLP v Cedar Capital Partners LLC [2014] UKSC 45: see here (pdf). A summary of the court's decision is available here (pdf). A panel of seven justices heard the appeal; the court's judgment was delivered by the President, Lord Neuberger. The court unanimously held that bribes (or secret commissions) received by an agent are held on trust for the principal.
