Regina (UMBS Online Ltd.) v. Serious Organised Crime Agency and Another
Court of Appeal
“The Serious Organised Crime Agency, a powerful statutory body whose decisions could imperil private and business banking activity on no more than a reported suspicion of money-laundering, should not withhold giving consent to a bank to allow it to operate a customer’s account under section 335 of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 without good reason.”
