This work explores the concept of serious fraud and the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) agency which was set up to prosecute serious frauds in 1988 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, following the 1986 Fraud Trials Committee Report.

Book Description

This is Book Two (Fraud and the Serious Fraud Office) in the series 'Fraud Law', following Book One (Serious Fraud and Current Issues), and deals with legal issues such as the right to silence of a suspect. The law of Germany, France and New York and Illinois is discussed and compared with English law to give a good perspective of fraud in the developed world.

The very fact that the series consists of five volumes speaks for itself that fraud is a huge problem and seems to have become accepted as part of our culture, with roots of fraudulent behaviour running deep into the fabric of finance and accountancy. There is nothing new under the sun, as the saying goes, and fraud is as common today as in centuries past, man's ingenuity and cunning only growing sharper.
