Corruption Watch, Global Witness and Transparency International Raise Issues With Deferred Prosecution Agreements

On the 19th of June 2015, Corruption Watch UK, Global Witness and Transparency International, sent an advisory letter to David Green, the Director of the Serious Fraud Office.

The letter notes that the first round of Deferred Prosecution invitations have been issued, and that this suggests the strong need to ensure that they are implemented in a manner that ensures that justice is both done and perceived to be done, only implemented when their is a strong public interest case to do so, does not lead to immunity for individuals for wrongdoing, and ensures that victims are properly represented and compensated.
