UK: Overseas Corruption Cases to be Fast-Tracked

The UKs three principal criminal enforcement agencies have agreed a standard process for compensating victims of economic crime and corruption overseas. The following UK Governmental bodies will cooperate to ensure that the question of reimbursement is considered: 

  • The Crown Prosecution Service.
  • The National Crime Agency.
  • The Serious Fraud Office. 

Ensuring every case brought about uses all available legal instruments in order to secure it whenever suitable, by asset recovery under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and looking at changes to reimbursement & compensation via the Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000.
