In English law, just as it is a criminal offence to steal, rob or murder, so it is a criminal offence for two or more people to agree with one another to commit that offence. An agreement to commit an offence is called a conspiracy. The offence of conspiracy can be committed even if the intended offence is never carried out.
By their very nature, large-scale conspiracies are often complex, involving substantial amounts of information and data. Investigations into, and prosecutions of, such conspiracies can be long and drawn out, such that they involve a great deal of work. and preparation.
