Timothy Forrester unanimously acquitted of all three counts of corruptly agreeing to make payments

On Monday 22nd December 2014 at Southwark Crown Court, Timothy Forrester was unanimously acquitted of all three counts of corruption. Charges were originally brought against Timothy Forrester as a result of the Serious Fraud Office’s (SFO) investigations into corrupt payments made for the award of business contracts to Smith and Ouzman Ltd.

Timothy Forrester was the only defendant who was acquitted of all counts. He was represented by Corker Binning partner Robert Brown and barrister David Spens QC of QEB Hollis Whiteman.

Corker Binning are happy to be able to correct the error in the SFO’s press release which asserted that Timothy Forrester was a ‘former international sales manager’ at Smith and Ouzman Ltd. He was and remains in employment as International Sales Manager at Smith and Ouzman Ltd.
