On 8 January 2016, Smith and Ouzman Ltd, which specialises in printing security documents, was ordered to pay £2.2 million by Southwark Crown Court. The sentencing follows a conviction (as reported in the 11 March 2015 issue of this newsletter) under the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906 for making payments totalling £395,074 to public officials for business contracts in Kenya and Mauritania.

In addition, two former Smith and Ouzman Ltd employees were sentenced to periods of imprisonment and disqualification as company directors for their role in the corruption (as reported in the above issue).
