Criminal Justice Act 1972

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

3(1)A person specified in a criminal bankruptcy order as having suffered loss or damage of any amount shall be treated, for the purposes of any ensuing criminal bankruptcy proceedings, as a creditor for a debt of that amount provable in the bankruptcy of the person against whom the order was made.

(2)For the purpose of proving any such debt in the proceedings, a copy of the criminal bankruptcy order shall, subject to paragraph 6 of this Schedule, be treated as sufficient evidence of the debt unless it is shown by any party to the proceedings that the amount of the relevant loss or damage is greater or less than the amount specified in the order, or that die loss or damage did not in fact result from any offence specified in the order ; and if it is shown as aforesaid that the amount of the relevant loss or damage is greater than that specified in the order, sub-paragraph (1) of this paragraph shall have effect as if the greater amount had been specified in the order.

(3)This paragraph is without prejudice to the proof in criminal bankruptcy proceedings of debts other than those made provable by this paragraph.

(4)Nothing in sub-paragraph (2) of this paragraph shall be construed as entitling any person to contend that the offence or offences specified in a criminal bankruptcy order were not committed by the person against whom the order was made.
