|One suspects much of the money is sent abroad asap!|
A Public Accounts Committee report says Government must do more to deprive criminals of the proceeds of crime. The Committee's report finds opportunities to impose confiscation orders are still being missed. It also issues a warning about the amount of money recovered when orders are made.
On the basis of unaudited figures provided by the Home Office, the Committee concludes: "Only £190m of the £1.9bn confiscation order debt can realistically be collected sending the wrong message to taxpayers, victims and criminals - that crime pays."
