Anna Machkevitch

In June 2019, Anna Machkevitch was charged with failing to comply with a requirement to provide documents relevant to the investigation, an offence contrary to section 2 of the Criminal Justice Act 1987.

On 30 January 2020, Anna Machkevitch was found guilty of failing to supply documents required by the SFO, contrary to Section 2 (3) of the Criminal Justice Act 1987.

District Judge John Zani ruled that Ms Machkevitch had unlawfully refused to comply fully with the Serious Fraud Office’s Section 2 request for documents.

She was ordered to pay a fine of £800, victim surcharge of £181 and the SFO’s full costs.

Under a Section 2(3) notice, the SFO requested documents in relation to its ongoing investigation into suspected fraud, bribery and corruption at the Eurasian Natural Resources Company (ENRC), but Ms Machkevitch failed to provide all of the documents requested. Compliance with a request made under Section 2 is a legal requirement.

Ms Machkevitch is not a suspect in the investigation into ENRC. This prosecution was a separate matter relating to Section 2 non-compliance.

The SFO’s investigation into ENRC is ongoing and focused on allegations of serious fraud, bribery and corruption in relation to the acquisition and retention of substantial mineral assets.
