Redflex announced today that an agreement has been reached with the U.S. Department of Justice (U.S. DOJ) regarding their investigation into the misconduct of former employees of the Company’s U.S. subsidiary, Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc. (Redflex Americas).
On 23 December, Redflex Americas entered a Non-Prosecution Agreement (NPA) with the U.S. DOJ, which means the company will not face any criminal charges from U.S. DOJ’s investigation. Under the NPA Redflex Americas will also not pay a fine or penalty to the U.S. Government.
Redflex Americas has agreed to compensate the City of Chicago, Illinois in the future, the amount (if any) will either be any final judgement by a court in the Qui Tam action that may be issued in favour of the City of Chicago or any settlement agreement that the Company and the City of Chicago may agree to that resolves the Qui Tam action. Redflex has also agreed to pay restitution to the City of Columbus, Ohio in the total amount of USD$100,000.
