Richard Kingston

On 21 December 2016, Richard Kingston was convicted of concealing, destroying or otherwise disposing of two mobile telephones, knowing or suspecting that the data stored on those phones would be relevant to the SFO’s inquiries.

He was sentenced the same day to 12 months imprisonment on each count, to run concurrently.

Mr Kingston was first arrested in December 2014 in respect of an SFO investigation into suspected bribes paid by the company Sweett Group PLC, a construction and professional services company, for which he had previously worked as a Managing Director in the Middle East.

Mr Kingston was arrested again in June 2015 in respect of a separate SFO investigation which also remains ongoing.
