The SFO said that the Court of Appeal had ruled in a 2014 case that English law does not criminalise the misleading of auditors by the company that is the subject of the audit; effectively removing the grounds for a prosecution against Olympus and Gyrus. The SFO also stated that it was also struggling to bring prosecutions against individuals because Japan does not extradite its nationals. Read more
