ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Jubilee Line Fraud. In 1997, the British Transport Police commercial fraud squad kicked off an investigation into massive corruption over the way contracts were awarded on the Jubilee Line extension. The building work was rushed through to coincide with the opening of the Millennium Dome and at £3.5 million, it came in at double the budget. Seven people were arrested in 1997 and in 2000 they were charged. The case came to court in June 2003 but by March last year two jurors had dropped out. By this year, two more were threatening to quit.
