This year’s lecture aims to answer these and many other questions about how fraudsters work, what they think, and how they respond when the game is up. Lecturer, Professor Martin Gill, is a leading criminologist who has studied fraudsters for many years, and has sought to understand how they operate. He will be accompanied by a convicted fraudster who will give insights into how and why he got into fraud, the impact of prison etc, and delegates will have an opportunity to ask questions. The Lecture should be both fascinating and illuminating, and potentially one of the most interestingCCS has ever staged.

The Bill will have a significant impact upon businesses,which are likely to have to respond by tightening up their procedures.

It extends UK jurisdiction to prosecute offences committedanywhere in the world, and hospitality and facilitation payments caught by the lawface penalties of up to 10 years’ imprisonment if convicted.
