Is there a proceeds of crime application?
Hi - How can i help with this please?
Yes, but that doesn't mean there wasn't a proceeds of crime application?
The problem is that there are lots of means of confiscation.
They can bring a POCA matter or they can make a forfeiture order.
Quite frankly, it is quite unlikely that the ywould have done nothing given the nature of the charges.
However, if this is an unlawful retention then you can bring an application pursuant to the Police Property Act.
I would get to the bottom of what the Corwn Court did first though as that could be an expensive mistake if this is founded on a misconception.
Can I clarify anything for you?
