The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) dropped a lawsuit against three former G4S executives whom it accused of defrauding the Justice Department over a prisoner marking contract.
Richard Morris, Mark Preston and James Jardine were due to appear in court in 2024.
They were charged with seven crimes of fraud in connection with alleged false statements made to the Department of Justice between 2009 and 2012.
Trial: Richard Morris, Mark Preston and James Jardine were due to appear in court in 2024.
But the prosecutor said the SFO did not provide any evidence against them.
All three worked in nursing and justice for a security company.
They were due to appear in court next year, 10 years after the SFO investigation began.
In 2020, SFO and G4S agreed to a £44 million deal to settle three fraud-related crimes between 2011 and 2012, when G4S claimed responsibility for misleading the government about the true amount of profit it was earning. under a contract for marking prisoners, including for marking criminals who have died.
