    Money Laundering |Cash Seizure|Kangs Crime Solicitors

    Kangs Solicitors are regularly instructed by both individuals and corporate clients seeking the release of cash which has been seized by the authorities, frequently as the result of alleged money laundering.

    Frances Murray of Kangs Solicitors outlines an on-going case where we have been instructed on behalf of a London based Money Services Bureau (“MSB”).

    Money Laundering Case | Solicitors for Cash Seizure Proceedings

    The Metropolitan Police are investigating the MSB, together with at least eighteen other companies, in relation to allegations concerning the money laundering of millions of pounds which may be connected to an investigation undertaken by the Spanish Anti Money Laundering Agency into the laundering of funds.

    A large amount of cash was seized by the Metropolitan Police under section 294 of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and Kangs are instructed by the MSB to apply for its release.

    Procedure for Securing Release | Kangs Solicitors

    Following an application to the Magistrates’ Court for further detention under section 295 of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, the cash can be detained by the Metropolitan Police for a further period of six months.

    Kangs have been instructed to make an application to the Metropolitan Police for the release of the detained cash which belongs to customers of the MSB as its detention is causing huge disruption to the operation of its business.

    Following an extensive forensic analysis of the MSB’s accounts, centralised database and consideration of the identification checks made in respect of each customer, an application has been made administratively to the Metropolitan Police for the release of the detained cash.

    It is submitted that the cash seized is not “recoverable” for the purposes of the Proceeds of Crime Act, as it arises from legitimate sources, the MSB customers, and will be released to legitimate beneficiaries.
