Avon to appear in criminal court hearing on Wednesday afternoon

NEW YORK, Dec 17 (Reuters) - Avon Products Inc and its China unit will be the subject of a criminal court hearing later on Wednesday afternoon in Manhattan, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.

The company disclosed earlier this year it had agreed to pay $135 million to resolve a multi-year foreign bribery investigation by criminal and civil U.S. authorities, and would enter into a deferred prosecution agreement with the U.S. Justice Department.
