Proceeds of Crime Act 2002

Section 351: Supplementary

510.Subsection (7) provides that production orders and orders to grant entry which may be authorised by a judge entitled to exercise the jurisdiction of the Crown Court (or, in Northern Ireland, a Crown Court judge) have effect as if they were orders of the Crown Court. This is so that, if such orders are not complied with, proceedings for contempt of the Crown Court may be instituted. Orders made by a High Court judge automatically attract contempt of the High Court if they are not complied with.
