SFO director insists independence will remain | News | Law Society Gazette

David Green told the House of Commons Justice Committee that the plans to create a new National Economic Crime Centre (NECC) will not impinge on the SFO’s work.

The NECC, which will sit within the National Crime Agency (NCA), will have the power to ‘directly ask the SFO to investigate suspects’, the government said.  However, Green said the NCA ‘already has the power’ to ask the SFO to take on cases [under the Crime and Courts Act 2013].
