Economic Crime Plan for 2019-2022 - Alun Milford quoted

15 July 2019

Alun Milford, Partner in our Criminal Litigation department, has been quoted in The  Law Society Gazette, Global Investigations Review and Commercial Dispute Resolution Online  on the government’s overhaul of economic crime rules and its publishing of the Economic Crime Plan for 2019-2022.

‘Many of the individual proposals contained within the plan are sensible. The problem is one of funding their implementation, and the plan offers nothing in this regard."

"Without effective funding of law enforcement the plan simply cannot be implemented effectively.’

"This new plan does nothing to answer the plea from NCA Director-General Lynne Owens for £2.7 billion in law enforcement funding to combat serious and organised crime over the next three years"

"the plan simply cannot be implemented effectively”. The GBP 6.5 million injections by UK Finance, he said, was “a comparatively small injection of money… [which] will not make the difference [the NCA] called for”

"The Ministry of Justice’s review of the responses to its consultation exercise is now well into its third year. The failure to take a decision – one way or another – has become embarrassing."
