On 12 February 2015, Christopher Smith (the former Chairman) and Nicholas Smith (the former Sales and Marketing Director) were sentenced following their convictions in respect of offences of corruptly agreeing to make payments contrary to section 1(1) Prevention of Corruption Act 1906. Agents acting for the company in Kenya and Mauritania had given promises to make corrupt payments to government officials for the award of contracts in those countries on behalf of the Company. Messrs Smith received periods of imprisonment (suspended in respect of Christopher Smith) and were disqualified as company directors for six years. The Company which (in December 2014) was convicted of three counts of the same offences awaits sentencing. This is the first conviction of a corporate defendant secured by the Serious Fraud Office in relation to foreign bribery by a company.
