Article summary

This week’s edition of Corporate Crime highlights includes analysis of the recent Court of Appeal decision that legal advice privilege, once established, will remain in existence unless and until it is waived, potential flaws in the emphasis placed by Serious Fraud Office (SFO) director Lisa Osofsky on corporate co-operation instead of traditional prosecutions and the increasing use of digital evidence in court cases. The impact of a Government no-deal Brexit readiness report on criminal justice and security and calls by the head of the National Economic Crime Centre (NECC) for increased co-ordination in the fight against economic crime are also covered, alongside the new US-UK Bilateral Data Access Agreement which will speed up cross-border electronic data transfers in criminal cases and the first commencement regulations for the Crime (Overseas Production Orders) Act 2019 (C(OPO) A 2019). We also cover a report by HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCPSI) on case progression in the SFO, the announcement by the Government that it will not transpose the proposed EU directive strengthening whistle-blower protection and calls by Europol calls for a global EU organised crime strategy at the European Police Chiefs Convention (EPCC). or take a trial to read the full analysis.
