Article summary

This week’s edition of Corporate Crime highlights includes a Brexit Bulletin to help practitioners keep up to date on the latest Brexit developments as well as analyses of judgments considering the duty of authorities to return data copied from seized computer storage devices and the impact of retirement on fitness to practise proceedings in the regulated healthcare sector. As the Fifth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (MLD5) takes effect, we look at these new EU rules designed to strengthen the bloc’s fight against money laundering and terrorist financing. We also provide analysis of the European Commission’s (EC’s) proposal to amend the EU Euratom Regulation on investigations by the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) as regards co-operation with the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) and the effectiveness of OLAF investigations and the judgment in Belhaj v Director of Public Prosecutions on closed material in criminal proceedings. The regulations bringing revised Codes of Practice under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE 1984) are also covered with the settlement agreed between the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Credit Suisse (Hong Kong) Limited (CSHK) and calls in the EU for global action on cryptocurrencies. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
