Senior Partner Aziz Rahman tells The Daily Telegraph that the Serious Fraud Office can expect a wave of pandemic-related fraud cases

Aziz said that the SFO will probably find itself having to investigate a lot of allegations of pandemic-related fraud, with healthcare and investment-related scams as well as price-fixing creating an increased workload for the agency.

He also outlined why recessions can lead to more business crime being detected – and why this could see the SFO taking on significantly more new investigations than it has in recent years.
