Legal Director Neil Williams warns of the potential for fraud in coronavirus humanitarian aid efforts



With expectations that the Covid-19 pandemic may prompt fraud that leads to a large number of major investigations, Rahman Ravelli’s Neil Williams outlined the situation for Law 360.

Neil explained that Serious Fraud Office investigations into charitable and humanitarian work are nothing new. But he explained that the circumstances brought about by coronavirus may well lead to humanitarian aid efforts being vulnerable to corruption during the pandemic. He also warned about a possible rise in fake investment schemes.
His comments were used in an article by Law 360 that looked at the range of crime that the pandemic may encourage and the challenges faced by the authorities. It can be read here.
