By Ron Kotrba | May 16, 2019

The U.K.’s Serious Fraud Office confirmed May 16 that it has opened a joint investigation with Dutch authorities regarding certain aspects of biodiesel trading at Greenergy and various third parties.

Five sites across the U.K. and additional sites in the Netherlands and Belgium were searched April 30, according to the SFO, and four individuals have been arrested and released without charge.

On its website, Greenergy stated, “On April 30, Greenergy became aware of an ongoing investigation into aspects of its biodiesel trading business and various third parties as part of a coordinated operation involving the U.K. and Dutch authorities. The company takes these matters very seriously and is engaging and cooperating fully with the authorities.”

Since this is an ongoing investigation, neither the SFO nor Greenergy could provide further details or comments.
