Law hitting criminals 'in pocket'

PUBLISHED October 14, 2004

Criminal assets worth nearly £800,000 have been seized from drug dealers, money launderers and fraudsters in the last six months.

Action taken by the Financial Crime Unit and the Civil Recovery Unit has also seen £17m worth of funds frozen.
The Proceeds of Crime Act allows funds to be targeted, even if there is no conviction. Almost £3m has been seized since April 2003.
