City directors convicted in £23 million green biofuel trial: Three former city directors have been convicted of a range of offences including conspiracy to commit fraud, conspiracy to furnish false information, fraudulent trading and Bribery Act 2010 offences. Gary Lloyd West, James Brunel Whale and Stuart John Stone were found guilty following an investigation by SFO into Sustainable Growth Group and two of its subsidiaries. This is the first time SFO has secured convictions for bribery in an action brought specifically under the 2010 Act. The three were later sentenced to a combined total of 28 years' imprisonment at Southwark Crown Court. SFO is in the process of instigating confiscation proceedings against them.
