Duncan Penny QC secures suspended sentence order for Innospec senior executive
Duncan Penny QC defended David Turner, a former senior executive of Innospec, who pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit corruption in relation to Indonesia and Iraq. The prosecution followed an investigation by the Serious Fraud Office into Innospec and the SFO’s subsequent investigation into the role of individuals associated with the company. In January 2010, Dr Turner entered into an agreement to cooperate with the SFO and latterly gave evidence at the trial of two of co-defendants. Dr Turner was sentenced to 16 months’ imprisonment, suspended for 2 years, together with 300 hours of unpaid work.
