The relatively minor role the criminal justice system plays in dealing with fraud-related cases is highlighted in a report from the Centre for Counter Fraud and Studies and described in The Times (£). It says that victims often feel let down because so many fraudsters are not taken to court but are dealt with instead by industry and professional regulators or government agencies.

Commenting on the report, Frances Coulson, senior partner and head of insolvency and litigation at Moon Beever and trustee of the Fraud Advisory Panel, said: "The Times reports today that under 2% of fraudsters are punished criminally. In an era with less public sector resource the civil remedies provided by the private sector and in particular where possible through the insolvency regime can provide remedies for victims and at least remove the ill gotten gains from the perpetrators."
