Fraud Act 2006

Criminal Justice Act 1993

Paragraph 24 makes three amendments to the definitions of Group A and Group B offences for the purposes of the jurisdictional provisions of Part 1 of the 1993 Act. The basic effect of these 1993 provisions is to give our courts jurisdiction over certain specific crimes of dishonesty even where only one element of the offence took place in the UK. So paragraph 24:

  • deletes the references in section 1(2)(a) to sections 15, 15A, 16 and 20(2) of the 1968 Act, which are redundant as they are repealed by the Act,

  • deletes section 1(2)(b) which comprises references to sections 1 and 2 of the 1978 Act, which are repealed by the Act, and

  • adds to section 1(2) a new paragraph (bb) with references to the offences in sections 1, 6, 7, 9 and 11 of the Act.

Paragraph 25 amends section 2 of the 1993 Act to ensure that the offence of fraud in section 1 of the Act can be prosecuted if the only event that takes place in this jurisdiction is the gain or loss of property.
