The SFO has today received approval to enter into a Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA) with G4S Care and Justice Services (UK) Ltd (G4S C&J), a wholly-owned subsidiary of G4S Plc. The DPA requires G4S C&J to pay a financial penalty of £38.5m and the SFO’s full costs of £5.9m. Compensation to the MoJ has already been paid by G4S C&J as part of a £121.3m civil settlement in 2014. The DPA only relates to the potential criminal liability of G4S Care & Justice Services (UK) Ltd and does not address whether liability of any sort attaches to any employee, agent, former employee or former agent of G4S Care & Justices Services (UK) Ltd.
