The SFO is a non-ministerial government department. Its role is to investigate and prosecute cases of serious or complex fraud in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and overseas bribery and corruption with a UK connection. Since the introduction of the 2010 Bribery Act, its role has expanded to include domestic corruption as well. The SFO is headed by the Director, David Green CB QC, who acts under the superintendence of the Attorney General.
