“On an application for an interim receiving order under s 246 of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 the Director of the Assets Recovery Agency had to establish a good arguable case that the property to be recovered or other property it represented had been obtained by unlawful conduct. It was sufficient to show that a criminal offence had been committed and the property had been obtained by it or in return for it. It was not necessary to prove that a particular person committed a particular offence on a particular day.”
