Nick Barnard Comments On SFO’s New Strategy to Reduce Serious Fraud, Bribery and Corruption

Partner Nick Barnard comments on the Serious Fraud Office’s (SFO’s) new strategy to combat fraud through a new pilot programme and legislation to incentivise whistleblowers.

Nick states, “Although the SFO press office has chosen to lead with the incentivisation of whistleblowers, this should be examined in context… in fact, only one line of the entire document pledges to ‘explore options’ for whistleblower incentivisation. As such, we should not be surprised if this idea falls by the wayside over the next few years.”
