On 18 June 2014, Dennis  Kerrison  and  Miltiades  Papachristos  were  convicted of conspiracy  to  commit corruption  following  an investigation  by  the SFO into bribery and corruption at Innospec. Innospec pleaded guilty in March 2010 to bribing state officials in Indonesia, and was fined US $12.7 million. David Green CB QC, Director of the SFO, stated “While other defendants took the decision to plead guilty at an early stage, the SFO case team has had to resist a sustained and extensive campaign designed to prevent these defendants from facing trial. That they have now done so is testament to the skills, professionalism and tenacity of those involved.”
