Proceeds of Crime Act 2002

Sections 206 to 208: Restraint orders; Enforcement receivers; Director’s receivers

267.Sections 206 to 208 essentially reflect the provisions made in this Act at sections 58 to 60 for England and Wales. The only significant differences between the changes proposed for England and Wales and those in Northern Ireland is that section 206 reflects that in Northern Ireland restraint orders will remain within the jurisdiction of the High Court. Further there is no provision made regarding the remedy of distress as that remedy has effectively ceased to be available in Northern Ireland.
