Investigations & Private Prosecutions

ACi is delighted to host this webinar sponsored by

Authorities can use the criminal system to prosecute people or companies. Section 6(1) Prosecution Offences Act 1985 provides the right for individuals and companies to bring a private prosecution. Private prosecutions are often quicker, more focused and more efficient than public prosecutions, especially in cases involving fraud. Private prosecutions are a useful tool in criminal cases of fraud and employee wrongdoing where law enforcement have no resources to investigate the case or the CPS decline to prosecute.
