Cash Seizure: MPR Client has cash seized at London Gatwick Airport returned

Main Money 620x245

Our client was travelling to Iran from London Gatwick Airport. He was searched and a large sum of cash was seized by the authorities under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA).

On his return he immediately contacted MPR Solicitors as we specialise in cash seizure proceedings. He had already been interviewed without a solicitor and the police had areas of concern.

We were able to see our client in a meeting and explain the procedures in cash seizure and forfeiture cases and take his instructions on the origin of the money seized and develop a strategy to advance a positive and cogent case for the return of the cash. We liaised with the police and were successful in having the cash returned on behalf of our client.

We are able to represent clients in cash seizure cases from anywhere in the UK including London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Birmingham and Manchester Airports and all other Ports including Dover.
