As part of a Serious Fraud Office (SFO) investigation, a unit of Airbus SE was fined a total £28.1 million plus costs after pleading guilty to corruption during work it carried out to provide telecommunications capability for the Saudi Arabian National Guard in the period 2008-10. The action highlights that enforcement may be carried out decades after an event occurs – and incur substantial reputational and monetary damage to a firm. All firms should take the opportunity to review the adequacy and effectiveness of their Anti-bribery and Corruption policies and procedures.
