Peter Chapman: sentenced for bribing a Nigerian

The Southwark Crown court in London has sentenced Peter Chapman, the former manager in Africa of  Australian polymer banknote manufacturer Securency PTY Ltd,  to two and a half years in prison for paying bribes in Nigeria.

Judge Michael Grieve on Thursday  sentenced Chapman to 30 months on each of four counts of violating the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906, to be served concurrently.

Due to time already served, Chapman, 54, will serve the remainder of his sentence on license.

Chapman was convicted by a jury on Wednesday at the Southwark Crown Court after a five week trial.

He paid about $205,000 or £136,000 in bribes to  an official, believed to be Ehidiamhem Okoyomon of the  Nigerian Security Printing and Minting PLC to win orders for reams of polymer substrate from Securency.
