Under the current arrangements for handling allegations under part 12 of the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, all such allegations were passed to the National Criminal Intelligence Service. However, these arrangements are about to be revised to give the Serious Fraud Office the central role on future allegations. The Government refrain from commenting on the specific origin of these allegations to avoid prejudicing continuing law enforcement investigations.
