U.K. Printing Company to Pay £2.2 Million in Bribery Case

Jaclyn Jaeger | January 11, 2016

The Southwark Crown Court in London last week ordered U.K. printing company Smith and Ouzman to pay a total of £2.2 million for making corrupt payments. The sentence and conviction followed a four-year investigation by the U.K. Serious Fraud Office.

As Compliance Week previously reported, a jury in December 2014 convicted father and son executives from Smith and Ouzman under the Prevention of Corruption Act for making corrupt payments totaling £395,074 to public officials in Kenya and Mauritania in exchange for business contracts, according to the SFO. The SFO started its investigation in October 2010, concerning offenses that occurred from 2006 to 2010.
