About the State Prosecutor for Serious Economic and International Crime

First, the State Prosecutor for Serious Economic and International Crime handles cases concerned with serious economic crime. Such cases are primarily concerned with suspected economic offences that:

– are extensive in scope,

– have been committed by means of specific business methods, or
– stand out as particularly qualified in some other manner.

Second, the State Prosecutor for Serious Economic and International Crime deals with international criminal proceedings – primarily concerned with genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and other serious crimes committed abroad for which the investigations and criminal prosecution require: 

– special knowledge and insight into conditions in areas outside Denmark, and

In addition to actual criminal cases, the State Prosecutor is involved in pre-legislative and international work. The State Prosecutor also handles the following tasks:

– tracing, restraint and confiscation of proceeds of crime
– initial review of criminal cases, including reports on intellectual property right violations
