SFO charges second individual in relation to Global Forestry Investments investigation

The UK Serious Fraud Office has charged a second individual in relation to its investigation into Global Forestry Investments. Omari Bowers, a former director of Global Forestry Investments, has been charged with conspiracy to defraud, forgery, and misconduct in the course of winding up. He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 2 August 2019.

The charges relate to alleged frauds concerning Global Forestry Investments between August 2010 and December 2015.

This follows the announcement on 9 July 2019 that Andrew Skeene, also a former director of Global Forestry Investments, has been charged with the same offences.

The investigation is ongoing and the SFO said it ‘cannot provide further comment at this time’.
