R v Hockey

Sentencing – Confiscation order. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, refused the defendant's application to re-open the decision to make a confiscation order against him. The very limited jurisdiction identified in R v Yasain ([2016] 2 All ER 686) was absolutely not available where it was alleged that the proper construction of the legislation had been misunderstood. Guidance on the practical procedural requirements for such jurisdiction was given.
