Almost unfathomable quantities of communications data pass beneath the noses of the intelligence agencies at home and abroad each day. Surely there is a manifest public interest argument in sharing some of that potential evidence with prosecutorial agencies such as the SFO and its counterparts elsewhere in the world, not least the US Department of Justice.

But nothing’s ever as simple as it seems. In this issue of GIR we take a look at the world of secret intelligence and ask senior former prosecutors on both sides of the Atlantic the extent to which government prosecutors have access to – and can rely on – the evidence unearthed by their convert colleagues.
