Barnaby Hone on Section 22 applications

28 April 2020

The following article by POCA specialist Barnaby Hone covers Section 22 applications in the light of the current pandemic. The current situation means that we are likely to suffer a large economic downturn, which will have a direct effect on the majority of section 22 applications, as the value of the assets which were subject to the application will have decreased. This article deals with the effect of the current crisis and summarizes some of the other grounds for challenging a section 22 application.

Barnaby has a range of experience in fraud, international asset recovery, financial crime and professional discipline law, particularly in healthcare and sports law matters. He has experience of all areas of the Proceeds of Crime Act both domestically and internationally. In addition to his busy practise, Barnaby writes the chapters on International Asset Recovery and Terrorism Finance for Millington and Sutherland Williams on POCA and recently completed a series of seminars and articles on changes to POCA under the Criminal Finance Act 2017. Barnaby is ranked in Legal500 and Chambers UK directories as a leading individual in POCA and Asset Recovery law.
