Multi-Million Pound Confiscation Hearing Begins
Following convictions for serious financial offences totalling £60 million, defendants appeared before the Royal Courts of Justice (“RCJ”) in a lengthy confiscation hearing where evidence from live witnesses, experts and defendants started being considered today. Yasin Patel and Amy Hazlewood, specifically instructed for the confiscation hearing, represent one of the main defendants.
The proceedings before the RCJ will consider the Prosecution application to confiscate assets that include property, money, land, houses, jewellery and various other items associated with the defendants. As well as assets in the UK, a great deal of the items are alleged to be hidden and available abroad in a Prosecution case that has taken many years to prepare.
Yasin Patel and Amy Hazlewood are instructed by Rustem Guardian Solicitors.
