Research on Confiscation by The White Collar Crime Centre

The White Collar Crime Centre has today published a Research Briefing exploring data recently obtained under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on the £1.9 billion outstanding on confiscation orders. The Research Briefing queries whether the system is working. Analysis of the findings suggests that the government’s commitment to uncovering criminal assets does not match the criminal’s commitment to making sure that the proceeds of crime stay hidden, the government does not hold basic information on how the confiscation regime is being enforced, and better record keeping is required along with an urgent review of the confiscation enforcement process.

The White Collar Crime Centre has been established by Bright Line Law to explore the developing engagement between criminal law and corporate misconduct. Directed by Jonathan Fisher QC, Lead Counsel of Bright Line Law, The White Collar Crime Centre operates separately from Bright Line Law’s legal practice.
