SFO Investigation | Kangs Bribery and Corruption Defence Solicitors


On 19th April 2018 there was an announcement, for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014, that the SFO had informed Ultra Electronic Holdings plc (“Ultra Electronics”), that they had opened a criminal investigation into suspected corruption in the conduct of business in Algeria by its subsidiaries, employees and associated persons.

This action resulted from a self-report by Ultra Electronics.

The Current Position | Kangs Financial Fraud Defence Solicitors

Ultra Electronics issued a statement in which it confirmed that it had referred itself to the SFO and that ‘given the stage of these matters, it is not possible to estimate reliably what effect the outcome of this matter may have on the group’.

The SFO has stated that it was looking into Ultra Electronics but could not provide additional information as the investigation ‘is live’.
