Confiscation & Seizure of Assets
Tuckers Solicitors frequently acts for clients who face the threat of their assets being confiscated or frozen, and are subject to Restraint Orders and cash forfeiture proceedings. The implications of these proceedings can affect not only the individual, but may also third parties who may be at risk losing their assets.
The 2001 amendment to the 2000 Terrorism Act enables law enforcement agencies to freeze assets at the beginning of an investigation or at the time of arrest, in order to prevent funds being used or moved. Under the 2005 Prevention of Terrorism Act, your assets are liable to be not only seized, but also compensation made to victims have to come from the proceeds of said seized assets, such as the selling of the defendants house. Under s43 and 44 of the 2000 Terrorism Act, the police reserve the right to detain your vehicle (for up to 28 days). This can be particularly inconvenient if your vehicle is used for your work.
