Revenue gets extended prosecution role

New measures for Revenue prosecution arm announced by Baroness Scotland

The new Revenue and Customs Prosecution Office will share the task of dealing with cases generated by the Serious Organised Crime Agency.

Home Office minister, Baroness Scotland, announced the move in a letter to peers detailing a late raft of further amendments to the bill that will set up the British equivalent of the FBI.

She told Peers: ‘This “dual prosecutor” approach will ensure that we make the best use of the existing range of skills within the CPS and CEPO and thereby ensure that SOCA receives a high quality prosecution service from the prosecuting authorities.’

Directions issued by the director of Revenue and Customs Prosecutions and by the director of Public Prosecutions will determine which body takes responsibility for a particular case.
