We are currently representing a member of the legal profession who is being prosecuted in an international corruption investigation into the securing of a $43 million UN medical aid contract, involving the USA, UK, Denmark, Switzerland, The Netherlands and the Congo.

It is alleged the parties to the offence improperly influenced key United Nations staff by offering corrupt financial inducements to secure a medical aid contract to Africa.
The case involves highly complex issues, including where jurisdiction for prosecution lies, the correct prosecution to bring following the introduction of the Fraud Act, and the possible requirements for the Attorney-General’s authority to prosecute.
