Course Aims:

The UK Supreme Court’s decision in the case of R v Waya seems to have added yet another layer of complexity to confiscation cases in England & Wales. Tim Green from St Philips Chambers attempts to simplify the Court’s decision by setting out the facts of the case and outlining its profound implications for confiscation cases more generally. He also considers the Court’s definition of the principle of ‘proportionality’ in confiscation cases and the circumstances in which it may be disproportionate to make a confiscation order.
