What is the Serious Fraud Office?

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:18 pm on 18 February 2020

News broke this morning that the Serious Fraud Office has today commenced an investigation into the NZ First Foundation. This follows the announcements that the Serious Fraud Office is carrying out prosecution of four people over donations to the National Party.

But what is the SFO? What's its role and why are its investigations and prosecutions so important. 

Len Andersen President of the Criminal Bar Association joins me to explain.
