WHO SHOULD PROSECUTE FRAUD, CORRUPTION AND FINANCIAL MARKETS CRIME?

fraud corruption financial marketsIn a briefing paper published today by the London School of Economics, out portal editor Jonathan Fisher QC considers who should prosecute fraud, corruption and financial markets crime.

SPEED READ

City fraud, financial markets offences and corruption should be investigated and prosecuted by a single enforcement authority instead of the multiplicity of agencies currently involved. The recent establishment of the Economic Crime Command at the National Crime Agency has muddied the waters further. It is high time for the Government to deliver on its Coalition Agreement commitment by allowing the Serious Fraud Office to mutate into an enlarged new economic crime-busting agency, leaving the Financial Conduct Authority to concentrate on the imposition of civil penalties for regulatory and compliance breaches which do not demand a criminal response.
