SFO strikes out again

The Serious Fraud Office haven't been having a good run in the courts lately with a string of acquittals or dropped cases. Today, they've just had another one. A jury only takes three hours to decide whether fourteen fraud and forgery charges are credible? Someone at the Serious Fraud Office needs a good kick up the backside real soon now. The fact that the prosecution is against a former Immigration Minister suggests to me that the dysfunctional Department of Immigration was the cause of the complaint.
