This act considerably altered the situations in which property may be considered 'tainted', or belonging to someone who has unlawfully benefited from 'significant criminal activity'. In a fundamental shift from the preceding Criminal Proceeds Act 1991, the new Act does not require a conviction. In this setting, criminal and civil forfeiture is increasingly being invoked by the Commissioner of Police as an additional tool to help target organised crime.
Practitioners will benefit from this text, which provides guidance on the Act’s provisions and machinery, the growing body of case law, and the status of a conceptually criminal regime which engages the civil procedure and civil standard of proof.
