Three arrested in first Serious Fraud Office searches of 2023

11 January, 2023 | News Releases

This morning, the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) searched three premises across England, with support from National Crime Agency and local police colleagues. Three arrests were made and individuals are being questioned.

This activity is linked to a new criminal investigation opened by the SFO in November 2022 into a business in the energy sector.

As this is an ongoing investigation, the SFO can provide no further comment or information at this time.


Notes to editors
