Civil society groups’ letter to the Director of the SFO on implications of the Airbus Deferred Prosecution Agreement

Author: Spotlight On Corruption

In the letter, we ask the SFO to look at:

  • whether the regime provides sufficient incentives for companies to self-report

  • whether senior executives are being held to account effectively

  • whether the penalties imposed reflect the full wrongdoing committed

  • whether compensation principles are being effectively applied in DPAs

  • whether there is enough transparency in the DPA regime and

  • whether Article 6 of the OECD Convention is being sufficiently respected particularl with regard to the national economic interest.
