Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of CUMMINS) v MANCHESTER CROWN COURT (2010)

PUBLISHED July 27, 2010

[2010] EWHC 2111 (Admin)

There was no basis for limiting or in any way imposing a condition on the return of material unlawfully seized by the Serious Organised Crime Agency in relation to a money laundering investigation. However, the material was to be formally returned so that there was absolutely no doubt who was receiving it and taking responsibility for it given its significance and the potential consequences under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 s.342 of disposing of or destroying it.
