Regina v Kakkad – WLR Daily

Regina v Kakkad [2015] EWCA Crim 385; [2015] WLR (D) 130

‘In confiscation proceedings, in relation to the benefit to be assessed, the market value of cocaine, to the extent that it was matched by an available cutting agent, was that which would have been obtained by cutting it with that available agent. However, the value of cocaine which was not matched by an equivalent amount of cutting agent in the defendant’s control could not properly be valued on any basis other than its undiluted wholesale form.’
