Abstract

Explores the circumstances in which the making of an application for a confiscation order might amount to an abuse of process entitling the court to grant a stay of proceedings. Outlines the facts leading to the Court of Appeal decision in R. (on the application of BERR) v Lowe and reviews the case law referred to by the Court of Appeal. Highlights other cases decided subsequent to Lowe.
