Private prosecution to pursue fraud by a co-director

Our client identified a huge financial loss due to actions of his company co-director. This was reported to the police who decided not to take any further action due to the lack of resources. Specialist investigators from AnotherDay were instructed to review a substantial amount of material obtained to ascertain if any wrong doing had taken place. Further evidential material was identified, seized and reviewed as part of the investigation which proved criminal acts had taken place. Our investigators collated all the material for an independent law firm to review and to apply the evidential threshold test  - this led to a successful application for summons to court and the launch of a private prosecution.

Outcomes for the client

  • Resulted in a speedy process through the judicial system in comparison to state criminal prosecutions
  • Identified evidence of wrong doing not yet identified
  • Launched a successful private prosecution
