PAUL HANSFORD (Claimant) v SOUTHAMPTON MAGISTRATES' COURT (Respondent) & REVENUE & CUSTOMS (Interested Party) (2008)

PUBLISHED February 19, 2008

[2008] EWHC 67 (Admin)

A receiver was not entitled under the Criminal Justice Act 1988 s.81(1) to retain sums in respect of his fees and disbursements out of the proceeds of realisation from the sale of property of an individual against whom a confiscation order had been made, but was required to apply those sums towards the satisfaction of the confiscation order as soon as they were received. The magistrates' court had no discretion as to whether interest was to be paid on sums unpaid under such a confiscation order.
