Confiscation: A Practical Guide to Confiscating Crime Proceeds explores all the principal stages covering confiscation proceedings both in drug trafficking and other crime. The work examines all processes from the early investigative stage and the use of production orders to the initial freezing of assets in the civil courts by means of restraint orders. The book also explores the procedures followed at a confiscation hearing in the criminal courts, including the type and standard of evidence required and the consequent making and enforcement of a confiscation order. Confiscation is designed to assist all those involved in the process of confiscating crime proceeds. A practical handbook, Thomson's Confiscation provides straight-forward guidance to confiscation proceedings as effective in the Scottish courts under the Proceeds of Crime (Scotland) Act 1995 and the Criminal Law (Consolidation)(Scotland) Act 1995.
