Much like the United States, Britain is considering rewarding whistleblowers in order to encourage more to come forward in an effort to uncover fraud and other white-collar crimes.
The U.K. Home Office and other government agencies will examine the qui tam provisions of the U.S. Under these provisions, whistleblowers receive a percentage of any financial penalties received when they work with prosecutors and regulators to uncover fraud.
The National Crime Agency (“NCA”) is Britain’s attempt to form a national police agency similar to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) here in the U.S.
