Further to his article which appeared on this website on July 30th 2019 Tim Thompson of Kangs Solicitors reports upon a further Unexplained Wealth Order(‘UWO’) obtained by the National Crime Agency (‘NCA’).

The Background | Kangs NCA Defence Solicitors

The NCA discovered that a Northern Irish woman had suspected links to serious organise crimethrough paramilitary activity and cigarette smuggling.

The NCA alleges that six properties have been acquired through illicit activity and have secured Interim Freezing Orders to prevent their disposal whilst the investigation continues.

NCA Comment | Kangs Unexplained Wealth Order Solicitors

Andy Lewis, Head of Asset Denial at the NCA, said:

“This is the fourth case in which we have obtained a UWO. Our investigations are complex and involve careful consideration before we make an application before the court”.

“We do not investigate illicit finance based on monetary value alone. This latest order shows that we will act against those who we believe are causing the most harm to our communities”.
