    APP fraud – Quincecare duty claims against banks replaced by new “retrieval duty” claims

    The recent decision in CCP Graduate School Ltd v National Westminster Bank plc and another [2024] EWHC 581 (KB), demonstrates how Claimants are repositioning claims against banks arising from authorised push payment (APP) fraud from breach of Quincecare duty claims to so-called “retrieval duty” claims.To date, the Courts have been reluctant to strike out such claims on a summary basis allowing them to proceed to trial.

    Federal Council issues preliminary draft of new Administrative Criminal Law Act

    On 31 January 2024, the Swiss Federal Council suggested a total revision of the Administrative Criminal Law Act of 22 March 1974 (ACLA) and issued a preliminary draft including an explanatory report.According to the Federal Council's explanatory report, the total revision of the ACLA will strengthen the rights of the accused. In addition, the ACLA’s procedural rules will be more efficient and modern by aligning with ordinary criminal procedural law as set out in the Swiss Criminal Procedure Code (CrimPC). The provisions of the ACLA, however, will not be incorporated into CrimPC or the Swiss...
