Confiscation 1st July 2015 | POCA Proceedings | Birmingham Crown Court


Kangs Solicitors represented the Defendant in this matter who was facing Confiscation Proceedings under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 whereby the Crown were alleging that he had benefited from his criminal conduct to the value of approximately £700,000.

It was alleged that the money was derived from the cultivation of cannabis and conspiring with others to steal motor vehicles and sell the valuable vehicle parts online.

Following months of preparation which included a detailed analysis of our client’s sources of income, bank accounts and internet trading accounts, we sought to persuade the Prosecution to accept a significantly lower figure than the £700,000 being sought.

As a result of submissions made on our client’s behalf, the Prosecution agreed to a Confiscation Order in the sum of just £1,825.00. Our client was very pleased with the result of these proceedings which was achieved by a detailed knowledge and understanding of the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) legislation.

The Confiscation and Restraint Team at Kangs are here to assist clients facing such allegations. Please do not hesitate to contact us.

The case was conducted by Cagin Husnu of Kangs Solicitors.
