    HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCPSI) published its report into the Proceeds of Crime (POC) Divisions of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and the Serious Fraud Office (SFO). The report was based on an evaluation of 80 CPS and 13 SFO cases and found that both proceeds of crime teams were effective in identifying and seizing the proceeds of crime. The report also noted that the SFO's Roskill model, whereby investigators and prosecutors collaborate in respect of a criminal investigation, prosecution and any proceeds of crime work, was a significant benefit to the management of the SFO's POC files, and should continue. Overall, the report found that both the CPS and SFO proceeds of crime divisions were effective in identifying and seizing the proceeds of crime.

    The topic is a significant issue for companies and has been the subject of debate following numerous calls for the Government to explore again the question of when criminal liability should be attributed to companies.

    Concern has been expressed that the identification principle does not adequately deal with misconduct carried out by and on behalf of companies, and does not strike an appropriate balance. In particular, some have suggested that it has proved disproportionately difficult to prosecute large companies such as banks for economic crimes committed in their names, by relatively senior managers, for the company’s benefit
