Aziz Rahman wrote an article that assessed whether the fight against economic crime is receiving adequate resources.
His assessment was prompted by the charity Spotlight on Corruption stating that more funding was needed if the authorities were to properly tackle such crime. Aziz’s article was published recently by HMRC Enquiries, Investigations and Powers magazine.
Aziz explains the government’s expenditure on economic crime and argues that Spotlight on Corruption’s report provides little reason for optimism.
He highlights the review currently being carried out into the work of the Serious Fraud Office – at the request of the Attorney General – following heavy criticism of the agency in the wake of the quashing of a bribery conviction.
But he also makes clear that enforcement agencies can function effectively without an ongoing dependence on extra funding., as resources are not the only factor when it comes to tackling economic crime.
