The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA) came into force in February 2003, introducing a new anti-money laundering regime. It created the Asset Recovery Agency; introduced wide new powers in relation to the confiscation of criminal property; as well as new civil recovery and enforcement powers.
The fourth edition of this popular Blackstone's Guide provides a clear and accessible exploration of POCA. The book has been completely updated to include all recent developments, notably: the Criminal Procedure Rules 2010; the Policing and Crime Act 2009; the UK Borders Act 2007; and Statutory Instruments extending the powers of financial investigators and powers of cash searches and seizure. It also includes extensive coverage of recent relevant case law, including three House of Lords decisions redefining the meaning of 'obtaining' property (May, Jennings, Green). It includes the full updated text of POCA 2002, plus other essential materials.
