Alun Milford has spoken on SFO’s appetite for prosecutions and deferred prosecution agreements (DPAs). He stressed that it is for SFO to decide whether to offer a DPA, not for the company to request one, and that a pre-condition to a DPA being possible is that the company admits its wrongdoing. He noted SFO plans several cases involving overseas corruption in the near future and highlighted the risks that intermediaries and agents can pose. (Source: SFO speaks on prosecutions)
