Civil Recovery Proceedings are taken in the High Court and the prosecuting agency need only establish that on the balance of probabilities criminal activity has taken place and the funds which it seeks to recover represent the proceeds of such crime.
More recently the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has used this power in many high profile cases, particularly where a corporate is involved; recent cases where the SFO has issued civil recovery proceedings have involved Balfour Beatty, Amec plc and Macmillian Publishing, for example.
We advised Balfour Beatty in what was the first ever Civil Recovery Order concluded by the SFO. The case related to the construction of the Bibliotheca, the Great Library of Alexandria, and formed the template for the SFO guidance on corporate self reporting.
David Green QC the SFO’s current director has however indicated that the use of such orders will be greatly restricted in future with full criminal prosecutions becoming more common once again.
