||As and when matters are brought to the attention of the Serious Fraud Office (SFO)
they are assessed in the context of the SFO's remit to investigate fraud, bribery
and corruption. If appropriate, relevant matters will be considered for criminal investigation
in line with SFO internal procedures. The SFO does not comment on its assessments
or their status at any one time but does publish on its website details of those cases
formally adopted for criminal investigation, when this is possible without prejudice
to the investigation.
