Legal Director Joshua Ray details for Fraud Intelligence the issues considered by a defendant facing charges in multiple jurisdictions


Posted in: Multi-Agency and Multi-Jurisdictional.


A defendant who is wanted in more than one jurisdiction needs to carefully consider a number of issues before they decide where they are going to face charges. Rahman Ravelli’s Joshua Ray outlined these issues in an article that was published by Fraud Intelligence.

In his piece, Josh detailed how factors such as the scope for lenient treatment as a reward for cooperating with the authorities, the possible size of a sentence and even the conditions of a country’s prisons can all be important when a defendant is “forum shopping’’.

He made reference to the case of Saman Ahsani, who was wanted in both the US and UK for his alleged involvement in the Unaoil bribery scheme and chose to face US justice.
