Re Assets Recovery Agency (Ex-parte) (Jamaica)

Criminal law – Proceeds of crime. The judge and the Court of Appeal of Jamaica refused the appellant Assets Recovery Agency's application for a customer information order (CIO), pursuant to ss 119 to 125 of the Jamaican Proceeds of Crime Act 2007. The Privy Council, in dismissing the Agency's appeal, held that the Court of Appeal's refusal of the CIO had been correct because the flaws in the application had meant that the statutory conditions for making the order had not been made out. However, it had been in error in its ruling on three points of general principle and the correct approach was set out.
