BREAKING: SFO launches new corruption prosecutions

Print Friendly

The SFO’s fight against corruption continued this week.

In a story which has not picked up much coverage earlier this week the SFO charged five men with offences of conspiracy to corrupt.

The charges follow a two-year investigation into allegations of corruption in relation to multi-million pound engineering contracts in the energy sector over more than eight years.

In a statement on its website the SFO said:
“Some of the defendants were employed by the companies responsible for the procurement of these projects and are alleged to have passed confidential information to others who then offered to provide it to companies bidding for the contracts in return for a percentage of the contract value.”
