Another successful outcome for our financial crime department. Roger Sahota represented a client arrested at airside customs found to be carrying €50,000 in cash. This money was seized pursuant to the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA 2002) cash seizure provisions.
After making representations on his behalf, the authorities agreed voluntarily to return these funds to our client, with interest. POCA cash seizure court proceedings were discontinued.
Our practice is currently dealing with a number of similar cases regarding the cash seizure provisions of the POCA legislation. If you need advice on a cash seizure application contact our financial crime department.
