BRIBERY ACT: Inadequate procedure

06 February 2015  

James Henson reports on the first conviction under the Bribery Act

While much of the country was embarking on preparations for the festive season, in December 2014 three company directors were found guilty and sentenced to a combined 28 years in prison for their part in a £23m biofuel fraud. They were also disqualified from acting as directors for a combined total of 40 years and will become the subject of confiscation proceedings and compensation orders.
