Can I withdraw a suspicious activity report I made yesterday to the National Crime Agency?

Can I withdraw a suspicious activity report (SAR) I made yesterday to the National Crime Agency (NCA)? New information has now removed all suspicion.

During the notice period, where the funds subject to the disclosure remain under your control, and prior to any response from the NCA, if you no longer wish the NCA to consider your request for a defence against money-laundering (DAML), then such a request can be withdrawn in writing by email to DAML@nca.gov.uk.

The NCA will retain the information disclosed for intelligence purposes.
