[2012] EWCA Crim 67

The contempt of court constituted by breach of a restraint order under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 s.41 was a civil, not a criminal, contempt, meaning that the principle of speciality did not preclude proceedings for such a contempt against a person who had been extradited to the United Kingdom to face charges of fraud.

CA (Crim Div) (Gross LJ, Openshaw J, Judge Milford QC)
