I want to submit an application to the Crown Court to have the restraint order varied to allow me to sell the property.
I also want compensation from the Crown as I was not allowed to vary the order 3 years ago and since have had to maintain and repair the property (that I am unable to live in) without any financial benefit. I was told 3 years ago that I could not vary the order but I have since discovered the order was obtained without full and frank disclosure of my existence to the Judge who signed it.
What I mean is, the judge was not informed that I had sold a property with a £39,000 profit to fund the purchase of the property, that I worked legitimately as a teacher with a good income and was not suspected of any crime. In fact, the Judge was not informed that I existed at all. I am not mentioned in the restraint order at all and subsequently was not served with a copy nor have I ever been contacted with any court proceedings regarding the property. I have effectively been ignored completely with regards XXXXX XXXXX prosecution case and the restraint/confiscation proceedings against my former partner.
