Prosecuting authorities can seize and restrain assets even before any criminal charges are applied. They also have the power to seize any cash found during their investigation.
If you are investigated or prosecuted for fraud, the authorities may freeze your assets and potentially confiscate profits from any illegal activities under the Proceeds of Crime Act. These measures can impact the people around you as assets can be frozen for a considerable length of time, even if you are found not guilty.
Restraint proceedings can freeze property which might later be confiscated. This means you cannot sell or transfer the property until the restraint order is lifted. A confiscation order is only awarded following a conviction to ensure that no one benefits from the proceeds of crime. The amount confiscated is determined by the court and depends on how much is thought to have come from criminal activities.
