Rachel Clark recently represented a client in their capacity as an “affected” person at a 2-day asset forfeiture hearing under Part 5 POCA 2002. Rachel opposed HMRC’s application to forfeit funds held in the respondents’ UK bank accounts on the client’s behalf. The accounts had previously been frozen as HMRC suspected money laundering by the respondents.
