As outlined above, the SFO’s Section 2 powers have limited extra-jurisdictional effect where the ‘sufficient connection test’ is met.

The SFO may also seek mutual legal assistance from overseas authorities via the Crime (International Co-operation) Act 2003. Under that statute, the SFO may utilise the assistance of overseas authorities to serve various documents (eg, summons, Section 2 notices), obtain evidence (including witness statements on oath, documentary and banking evidence) and execute search and seizures.
