On 11 March 2015 Graham Marchment pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court and was sentenced to 2 and a half years imprisonment for his role in the award of contracts in a series of high-value infrastructure projects.
Marchment, a British national originally from West Sussex, but resident in the Philippines in recent years. His guilty plea follows the conviction after trial of four co-conspirators as part of the same case in January 2012.
The contracts involved were worth around £40m and located in countries such as Egypt, Russia and Singapore. Marchment was a procurement engineer and deliberately leaked confidential information to bidders in exchange for payments disguised as commission.
