Hearing to confiscate drug cash adjourned

Worcester News: Hearing to confiscate drug cash adjourned Hearing to confiscate drug cash adjourned

A HEARING to confiscate assets from a drug dealer who was stopped in a car by police has been adjourned at Worcester Crown Court.

Kamil Haque was found to have 55.4 grams of heroin, worth £3,570, in a bag which contained chef’s clothing.

On August 17 at Hereford Crown Court, 23-year-old Haque, of Drovers Way, Blackpole, Worcester, was jailed for two-and-a-half years after pleading guilty to possession of the drugs with intent to supply.

Prosecutor Paul Whitfield told Judge John Cavell there was no common ground between the Crown and defence over the amount that could be confiscated under a Proceeds of Crime Act procedure.

He said members of Haque’s family were likely to be called as witnesses at the next hearing which will be held in 2013.

Haque was arrested on March 27. He jumped bail and was arrested again on July 18.

We understand that the new law about confiscating items considered to have been gained from illegal practices was infallible. Now according to this report the defence seem to be calling the tune. Is this the true story of “Those who pay the piper call the tune”...

This man has been captured, tried and found guilty and has been incarcerated for his crime. Everything he owns should now belong to the Crown, all monies gained placed into the coffers of our treasury, and his property either sold on the open market, or auctioned off with those monies also ending up within the treasury. These items should be forfeited without any further consideration.

Totally agree with the above comments, why are we even having any debate about it, he should lose everything as he has no reguard for the law at all.

Rather harsh judgement considering how little there is to this story. No idea how long he's been dealing, maybe this was his first time and he actually lost money! I don't have any sympathy for heroine dealers, but he still deserves the same judicial process as say a Member of Parliament who lies about his expenses having effectively stolen from the public coffers!

IIam of the opinion that our fiddling MP, should also have been sent to prison for their misuse of public funds.
Unfortunately, they had the benefit of how to interpret the rule of finance and claims. According to the printed information at the time. It was somewhat like attempting to place an interpretation on that very heavily used word in legal terms “REASONABLE”
