Annotations are used to give authority for changes and other effects on the legislation you are viewing and to convey editorial information. They appear at the foot of the relevant provision or under the associated heading. Annotations are categorised by annotation type, such as F-notes for textual amendments and I-notes for commencement information (a full list can be found in the Editorial Practice Guide). Each annotation is identified by a sequential reference number. For F-notes, M-notes and X-notes, the number also appears in bold superscript at the relevant location in the text. All annotations contain links to the affecting legislation.
32A(1)Where a court makes a forfeiture order in a case where—E+W+S+N.I.
(a)the offender has been convicted of an offence that has resulted in a person suffering personal injury, loss or damage, or
(b)any such offence is taken into consideration by the court in determining sentence,
the court may also order that an amount not exceeding a sum specified by the court is to be paid to that person out of the proceeds of the forfeiture.
(2)For this purpose the proceeds of the forfeiture means the aggregate amount of—
(a)any forfeited money, and
(b)the proceeds of the sale, disposal or realisation of any forfeited property, after deduction of the costs of the sale, disposal or realisation,
reduced by the amount of any payment under paragraph 30(1)(d) or 31(1).
(3)The court may make an order under this paragraph only if it is satisfied that but for the inadequacy of the offender's means it would have made a compensation order under Article 14 of the Criminal Justice (Northern Ireland) Order 1994 under which the offender would have been required to pay compensation of an amount not less than the specified amount.]
