The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) of the U.K. is taking a second look at one of its practices that has raised criticism in the past following a report published by the Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (CPSI).
CPSI released a report on Tuesday (May 24) that found SFO’s use of so-called “blockbuster funding” may hamper progress in investigations and could weaken cases taken on by the body, which investigates fraud and corruption. Blockbuster funding allows SFO to request extra funds ahead of major cases and stockpile external resources and staffing to prepare.
