a friend of mine was convicted in 2008 of creating/supplying cannibis. It was over six years ago. He was handed a three year sentence which has long since expired. He had 11k seized at the time from his bank account. Since he has had no criminal activity and has kept clean.
His uncle died this year leaving him a house in his will. Can he inherit it or will the proceeds of crime act still be able to come after him?
The house is worth approximately 200k and he could put it into his mother's name instead possibly.
How would we know if the confiscation order was fully satisfied? Is there a document they gave us at the time?
If they said he owed more than he had in his bank at the time could they now take it from the inheritance?
Is there a time limit on how long they can go after money?
Thanks for your help - will do the necessary credit thing.
If you take a look at the above link you will see why we are concerned. This guy inherited money some 4/5 years later and they still went after some of it to clear the previous order.
