Print Friendly

On 6 October 2010 during a coordinated search and arrest operation, over 80 members of the Serious Fraud Office, supported by officers of various police forces executed search warrants at 8 residential and a commercial site(s) in the UK.

Two men were arrested.

Two search warrants were also executed in Spain by the Spanish authorities.

In addition six search warrants were executed in Australia.

SFO Director Richard Alderman said, “This is an excellent example of how anti-fraud agencies around the world are working together to fight economic crime. It requires much painstaking preparation to co-ordinate action like this and I am delighted that our collective hard work has resulted in successful searches in a number of jurisdictions”.
