NCA updates on SARs: NCA has published an update on the closure of cases of Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) requesting consent. The report explains the reasoning behind the decision (see FReD 12 September) that from 1 October NCA will close all requests for consent that do not provide the reason for suspicion or do not identify the criminal property without further engagement with the reporter. The paper gives guidance on what a reporter should include in a SAR. (Source: NCA Updates on SARs)
