UK Supreme Court limits SFO’s investigative powers

February 5, 2021, Global Investigations Review

Ian Hargreaves is quoted in Global Investigations Review regarding the UK Supreme Court’s ruling that the Serious Fraud Office cannot force a foreign company to hand over material stored abroad. Mr. Hargreaves says, “It will be interesting to see how the SFO reacts and whether Lisa Osofsky will push for legislative reform. I suspect the SFO would argue that the legislation is outdated and not fit for purpose in the global economy we now live in.” He adds, “Section 2 notices need to be brought into the modern era but this might cause some tension with international relations.”
