Serious Fraud: Investigation and Trial
Butterworths LexisNexis, Jan 1, 2003 - Criminal procedure - 718 pages
This working manual is for all those involved in prosecuting and defending cases of serious fraud. It draws together the strands of what has effectively become a new and distinct area of criminal practice. Contai ning comprehensive coverage of recent changes and legislation in this area, the third edition has been extensively revised to include four new chapters, and covers issues such as money laundering, which are becoming increasingly prominent. Other chapters include prosecution and defence duties of disclosure; restructured statutory materials; updated commentary and material on the law relating to serious fraud cases; details of offences, including conspiracy to defraud; cross-border procedures; and coverage of the increasingly important international dimension to fraud investigations. Kirk and Woodcock explain clearly and succinctly the rules applicable to fraud cases, examining the means open to the prosecutor, defendant and judge in preparatory hearings to ensure a fraud trial is more manageable.
