We Don’t Think the SFO is in ‘Disarray’ – We Think it Needs More Resource

Written by Robert Barrington on Tuesday, 7 October 2014

A rather unfortunate incident today.  A letter from TI-UK published in the FT had been edited to imply that the SFO is in ‘disarray’.  Ironically, the letter was intended to be supportive of the SFO in the face of rumours that it is going to be abolished.  


A rather unfortunate incident today.  A letter from TI-UK published in the FT had been edited to imply that the SFO is in ‘disarray’.  Ironically, the letter was intended to be supportive of the SFO in the face of rumours that it is going to be abolished.  The original had in fact said that it was the government’s own anti-corruption strategy that was in some disarray, in the light of the sacking of the anti-corruption champion and the serial delay of the anti-corruption plan announced by the Prime Minister in October 2013.

Why are we wary of plans to abolish the SFO?  You can read about it here in the letter that TI-UK and ten other NGOs have written to the Prime Minister.
