The Serious Fraud Office is investigating the world’s biggest printer of banknotes over suspected corruption in South Sudan.
The SFO said it was examining how the UK company De La Rue, which produces notes for the Bank of England, and associated individuals conducted business in the African country.
De La Rue said it was cooperating with the SFO, which investigates serious fraud, bribery and corruption. The Basingstoke-based company and the SFO declined to give further details about the investigation.
“Given the early stage of these matters, it is not possible to predict reliably what effect their outcome may have on De La Rue,” the company said.
