Roger Sahota has been instructed in third party enforcement proceedings emanating from one of the largest fraud cases in the country. In recent confiscation proceedings, our client's former partner was made subject to a confiscation order in the sum of £100m (benefit) with an available amount in excess of £5m. We have applied to the court for our client’s third-party interest in property included in the underlying valuation to be recognised. This case raises a novel point concerning the application of the Proceeds of Crime Act enforcement receivership provisions in cases where the legal title of property vests in someone other than the subject of the predicate criminal and confiscation proceedings.
Richard Thomas of Doughty Street Chambers, a recognised expert in enforcement receivership applications has been instructed as Counsel.
