The Asset Recovery Task Force policy review identified legislative, policy and operational changes that could be made to improve the UK’s response to overseas grand corruption cases following regime change. The review’s recommendations

included actions that could help prevent the proceeds of corruption coming to the UK in the first place, as well as what could be done to identify, freeze and recover stolen assets. It has been implemented through measures in the

Serious Crime Bill (including the lowering of the legal test for restraint orders and extending investigative powers so that they may be used after a confiscation order has been made) and the UK Anti-Corruption Plan (including

the commitment to review the Suspicious Activity Report regime).
