Enforcement authority

Section 184: Enforcement authority

249.Section 184 sets out the same criteria for Northern Ireland as for England and Wales for the appointment of the Director to enforce a confiscation order. However the rationale for this provision in Northern Ireland is to ensure that the Director when operating in Northern Ireland can use the specific powers of receivership, provided in section 202 of the Act, to assist him in the enforcement of confiscation orders.
