Section 54: Enforcement receivers

106.Section 54 applies to an enforcement receiver appointed under section 50 on the application of the prosecutor (i.e. to cases in which the Director is not the enforcement authority). It specifies how any sums in the hands of the receiver are to be disposed of, after a confiscation order has been made. The sums are payable, subject to certain prior payments the Crown Court may order, to the enforcing justices’ chief executive. Under subsection (3), once a confiscation order has been satisfied, the receiver is to pay any remaining sums in his hands to those with an interest in the property concerned, as directed by the Crown Court. The Crown Court must give those with interests in the property concerned a reasonable opportunity to make representations before making any directions under subsection (3).
