*R v Ahmad and another; R v Fields and others

Sentence – Confiscation order. The Supreme Court, allowing two appeals against confiscation orders in part, held that, whilst the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, had been right to hold that the benefit to be valued in respect of each of the defendants was the whole amount of the property obtained, the confiscation orders had to be amended to provide that they were not to be enforced to the extent that a sum had been recovered by way of satisfaction of another confiscation order made in relation to the same joint benefit.
