R v Winters:[2008] EWCA Crim 2953; [2008] WLR (D) 387

For the purpose of making the required assumptions in relation to determining whether the defendant had benefited from drug trafficking, the Crown was required to prove on the balance of probabilities that expenditure on mortgage payments was incurred by the defendant out of payments received by him in connection with his drug trafficking. Prima facie evidence that the defendant had incurred such expenditure was insufficient.”
