This work is now well-established in this area of law and is widely used by the Metropolitan Police and other police forces. The second edition incorporates all the recent developments in this field, including new legislation dealing with international co-operation in tracing the proceeds of crime, extended powers to request information and important new duties on financial advisers, including solicitors, to report suspicious transactions. Of particular importance is the Drug Trafficking Act 1994, which makes radical changes to the way in which confiscation orders are made and enforced. It includes extensive coverage of confiscation and related matters in respect of drug trafficking, terrorism and other offences including money laundering and is fully up to date. This is a short and practical guide to what is a complex area of legislation.
