Senior Partner Aziz Rahman tells Fraud Intelligence what is significant about the ninth deferred prosecution agreement



News Piece Rahman Ravelli’s Senior Partner Aziz Rahman detailed the most significant aspects of the ninth deferred prosecution agreement in a recently-published article.

In his piece, Aziz makes clear that the ninth DPA, concluded between the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and Airline Services Limited (ASL) is not as high profile as some of its predecessors.

But he emphasises that the agreement is notable as ASL is no longer active; having remained in existence as a non-trading entity in order to agree the DPA and discharge the terms of it. He also expresses the belief that this could be the first in a number of DPAs to be concluded, given the enthusiasm SFO Director Lisa Osofsky has for them and that the SFO has recently published guidance on them.

Aziz outlines the factors that will affect the possibility of the SFO offering a company a DPA. He also considers the ongoing German investigation into the bribery that led to the DPA.
