Fraud Advisory Panel proposals on a unified fraud prosecution office

16 March 2010

A working group of the Fraud Advisory Panel's legal and investigation process group has prepared a report considering whether the UK should adopt a unified fraud prosecution office as was recommended by Roskill in the Fraud Trials Committee report over 20 years ago.

The working group was chaired by Monty Raphael and comprised John Benstead of McGrigors LLP, Emma Porter and Ros Stow.

A copy of the report (as a PDF document) can be found on the Fraud Advisory Panel Website: Is there a case for a Unified Fraud Prosecution Office

Submissions from stakeholders are invited by the end of June 2010 and will be followed by a debate.
