Posted June 16th, 2008 in confiscation, drug trafficking, law reports, married persons by sally

Gibson v Revenue and Customs Prosecution Office [2008] EWCA Civ 645; [2008] WLR (D) 189

“The wife of a convicted drug dealer was entitled to keep her interest in the matrimonial home despite a finding in confiscation proceedings that she had guilty knowledge of the source of her husband’s wealth. The Drug Trafficking Act 1994 did not give the court power to bring her share of the equity in the matrimonial home within the confiscation order, since the assets were hers without any court order in her favour.”
