R (on the application of Bavi) v Snaresbrook Crown Court

Criminal law – Appeal. The claimant was arrested and £18,500 in cash was seized. Subsequently, that money was forfeited under s 298(2)(a) of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. The claimant's appeal was dismissed by the defendant Crown Court. The Administrative Court allowed the claimant's application for judicial review of that decision in the light of new medical evidence, but declined to exercise its discretion in favour of substitution, ordering an expedited rehearing instead.
