    Abstract

    This article analyses the Court of Appeal's interpretation of the fraud by abuse of position offence in R v Valujevs.
    Two issues are explored: first, the Court's welcome clarification of
    the meaning of a relevant ‘expectation’; second, the inadequacy of the
    Court's reasoning in deciding that an unlicensed gangmaster ‘is expected
    to safeguard, or not to act against, the financial interests’ of his
    workers.
