Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
“For the purpose of making the required assumptions in order to determine whether a defendant had benefited from drug trafficking, the Crown was required to prove on the balance of probabilities that the defendant had made payments out of payments received by him in connection with his drug trafficking. Prima facie evidence that the defendant had incurred such expenditure was insufficient.”
