The meeting’s purpose is the establishment of mutual assistance in the investigation of economic fraud. The SFO had the initiative for the collaboration.
The Serious Fraud Office is an independent British government institution, specializing in the investigation of major economic crimes, where tens of millions of British Pounds are at stake.
The institution has been following three Icelandic banks, Landsbanki, Kaupthing and Glitnir, since their collapse a year ago. They all ran operations in Britain.
