Bharat Sodha (the former International Tax Manager), Nidhi Vyas (the former Financial Controller) and Trevor Bruce (the former Area Director for Nigeria) were accused of conspiring to make corrupt payments totalling £180,000 to Nigerian tax officials, contrary to the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906. However, on 27 May 2015, the defendants were found not guilty in relation to all the charges, save for one on which the jury failed to reach a verdict (and on which the SFO has indicated that it does not intend to take any further action).
