R v Alstom Network UK Ltd

Criminal law – Conspiracy. There could be a fair trial of a corporate defendant for conspiracy where its guilt depended on the guilt of an individual – its directing mind and will – in circumstances where the individual was neither indicted as a co-conspirator nor otherwise available to give evidence at the trial. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, dismissed the defendant company's renewed application for leave to appeal against its conviction for conspiracy to corrupt.
