Senior Associate Jemma Sherwood-Roberts has commented in The Times on Zamira Hajiyeva’s failure to overturn Britain’s first unexplained wealth order.
Commenting on this development, Jemma said: “Today Mrs Hajiyeva failed in her second attempt to set aside the UK’s first UWO. The UWO merely holds ‘unexplained property’ in limbo, it does not allow the NCA to seize it without further application.
“Arguably it is about time that the NCA sought to take this to the next level – either by releasing the funds if they believe her explanation to be valid, however unlikely, or proceeding to seize the funds through civil recovery proceedings.”
