[2010] EWCA Crim 355

The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 s.6(6) did not apply to forfeiture proceedings to recover a loss sustained by the Customs and Excise from the evasion of excise duty and VAT on contraband cigarettes. Therefore there was no double recovery in the pursuit of forfeiture proceedings in relation to the cash recovered from the offenders, in addition to the confiscation proceedings.

CA (Crim Div) (Toulson LJ, Cox J, Judge Barker QC)
