BCL partner, Richard Sallybanks writes for Law 360 examining the case between the U.K. Serious Fraud Office and Tesco Stores Limited following the recent publication of the terms of the deferred prosecution agreement which provides a glaring example of how a DPA can result in real injustice to individuals and how the statutory DPA regime fails to provide them with any remedy.
BCL partner, Richard Sallybanks speaks to James Thomas of Global Investigations Review (GIR) about the possible repercussions of a UK judge’s decision to force retailer Tesco to hand over documents in a civil case that it obtained from the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) in a separate criminal matter.
Richard Sallybanks, partner at BCL Solicitors representing John Scouler, said: “We are delighted that Mr Scouler leaves court today knowing that the judge, having heard the entirety of the prosecution evidence, reached the firm conclusion that he had no case to answer.”
“That decision was obviously correct yet the SFO chose to pursue an appeal which was rejected yesterday.”
