In last week's issue of The Lawyer in the litigation column it was incorrectly stated that Indian company Spectrum Power Generation (SPG) had been accused of receiving millions of pounds of bribes in an action brought by shareholders in that company. In fact, the company was not and, as far as we are aware, has never been, accused of taking bribes. The allegation actually related to a director of SPG, which is not a party to this action. In addition, and contrary to what was stated, the judge did account for the nature of the Indian legal system and held that this action should be decided in India because the Indian connections of the action were "overwhelming". The appeal has been adjourned (at the appellants' request). We apologise for any embarrassment caused.
