Whitehall to consult on UK plea-bargaining
The Government has moved a step closer to introducing formal plea-bargaining in UK fraud trials after the Attorney General launched a consultation into the issue yesterday (3 April). The consultation runs for the next three months and will seek opinion from across the profession as Whitehall looks to improve its record fighting white-collar crime and reduce the cost of lengthy fraud trials. Responses are expected to be summarised in a report due in October.
