This blog post is one of a series of extracts from Insolvency Law Made Clear: A Guide for Debtors, the plain English, practical guidance for anyone facing demands over a debt they are struggling to pay.
A Trustee in Bankruptcy may find evidence that the bankrupt has
committed a criminal offence. For details, see Chapter 7. The Trustee
in Bankruptcy will not be the prosecutor. Instead, if the Trustee suspects
an offence has been committed, they will report it to the Insolvency
Service. The Insolvency Service will decide whether to forward
the case onto prosecutors.
