ECHR, A1P1 does not prevent civil recovery order


Re: Sanam v National Crime Agency [2015] EWCA Civ 1234

Appeal against an order permitting civil recovery pursuant to the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) 2002, s 267, in respect of property derived from unlawful conduct. The appellant, the former wife of a criminal, argued that the order violated her ECHR, A1P1 rights. Held: A1P1 did not prevent a civil recovery order being made.
