Energy Voice

A Scottish logistics group will pay more than £2million in fines after an illegal bribery operations was discovered in its own organisation.

Glasgow-firm the Braid Group found it had won contracts which breached the Bribery Act.

The company serves industries including chemicals, wine, food and beverages as well as the oil industry.

It comes after the Bribery Act was introduced more than five years ago.

It forbids companies based in the UK from paying bribes to gain business anywhere in the world.

According to reports, the firm became suspicious of two contracts four years ago, in 2012.

Following an investigation, it was found a staff member had set up an account which was used by an employee of a customer to buy holidays, hotels and cash.

Meanwhile, in the second case a profit-sharing arrangement was set up which rewarded the director of a company for placing orders with Braid.

Following the discovery, the company reported itself to the Crown Office and has agreed to pay a penalty of £2.2million.

It’s understood the company is now implementing new policies to prevent bribery from happening again.
