Seized cash can be retained for a period of up to 48 hours following which a Magistrates Court must be satisfied that there are reasonable grounds for the suspicion, and that continued retention is justified for the purposes of investigating its origin or intended use; or if criminal proceedings are contemplated or have commenced but not yet concluded.
Section 300 Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 allows a Magistrates Court to order the forfeiture of the cash or any part of it, if it is satisfied that it is recoverable property or is intended for use in unlawful conduct.
These powers were widely utilised by the Metropolitan Police during Operation Rize, the search of approximately 7,000 safety deposit boxes at three London locations; which enabled the seizure of a vast quantity of cash.
We have successfully represented a range of clients connected with Operation Rize and other matters including cash seizures made at UK borders.
