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”.
