Senior Partner Aziz Rahman assesses the main business crime issues that arose in 2020 for Fraud Intelligence



Rahman Ravelli’s Aziz Rahman was asked by Fraud Intelligence to give his assessment of 2020’s main business crime issues.

In his article, the Rahman Ravelli senior partner examines the year from the Serious Fraud Office’s (SFO’s) point of view. The agency’s loss in the Barclays case and the limited success it gained with its Unaoil investigation are detailed. But Aziz also highlights the SFO’s achievement in concluding its Airbus settlement and the level of scrutiny written into the deferred prosecution agreement finalised with G4S.

He examines the impact of unexplained wealth orders (UWOs) in 2020; detailing the significant cases involving them and arguing that they have not yet been the huge asset to the authorities that many hoped they would be.

Aziz’s article also looks forward to the next 12 months. It cites Cum-Ex as one of the issues that is set to dominate 2021, as investigations into the share-selling practice gather momentum and spread across borders.
