National Crime Agency v N and another

Criminal law – Proceeds of crime. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the appellant National Crime Agency's appeal against the judge's orders, granting the first respondent interim declaratory and mandatory interim injunctive relief. The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 had not ousted the judge's jurisdiction to make the orders, although the statutory consent regime was highly relevant to the exercise of the court's discretion. However, on the facts, no declaration should have been made, which, on the judge's own reasoning, meant that it had been inappropriate to grant a mandatory interim injunction.
