Section 2 interviews
On 6 June 2016 the SFO adopted new internal guidance on the process for inviting and handling requests for individuals interviewed under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice Act 1987 to be accompanied by a lawyer. This guidance was amended on 28 February 2019 to allow an additional legal representative to attend the interview for the sole purpose of taking notes. This does not permit the recording or transcribing of the interview. The SFO guidance is here. Guidance for individuals attending Section 2 interviews is here and for lawyers, here.
