Failing to comply with a Notice given by the SFO without reasonable excuse is a criminal offence and carries a prison sentence of up to 6 months and an unlimited fine.
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.
Proceedings are now active for the purposes of the Contempt of Court Act 1981.
