Bhanu Choudhrie and Sudhir Choudhrie

Question for Attorney General

UIN 210434, tabled on 21 January 2019

To ask the Attorney General, what is the status of (a) SFO and (b) CPS investigations into (i) Sudhir Choudhrie, (ii) Bhanu Choudhrie and (iii) other related parties.

Answered on

23 January 2019

The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) is aware of the allegations made publicly about Sudhir and Bhanu Choudhrie. The SFO can neither confirm nor deny if Sudhir or Bhanu Choudhrie are currently subject to investigation by the SFO, or what, if any, representations the SFO has received about them.

In order to protect the investigative process it is not always possible, or even desirable for investigative bodies to confirm whether or not an individual or organisation is subject to an investigation, or provide any details of matters under investigation.

The SFO proactively publishes information about its cases on its website whenever it is appropriate.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) prosecutes cases that are referred to it by the police and does not have any investigative function.
