A person is guilty of fraud by abuse of position if he:
occupies a position in which he was expected to safeguard, or not to act against, the financial interests of another person
abused that position
intending by that abuse to make a gain/cause a loss.
An individual may be regarded as having abused his position even though his conduct consisted of an omission rather than an act. The offence is complete once the individual carries out the act that is the abuse of his position. It is irrelevant whether or not the individual was successful in his enterprise and whether or not any gain or loss is actually made. Many cases of the most serious fraud and corruption are committed by the people at the top who have the power to conduct fraudulent transactions and cover them up.
