G4S Faces New Serious Fraud Investigation


G4S is facing fresh controversy after the Government announced it plans to refer the private security giant to the Serious Fraud Office for a second time.

The Ministry of Justice said that after auditing 15 big outsourced contracts worth almost £4 billion, it had discovered “serious issues” on G4S’s running of facilities management for the British courts. The problems covered “invoicing, delivery and performance reporting”, the Government said.
