Proceeds of Crime Act 2002

Section 375: Supplementary

528.Subsection (2) allows the account monitoring order itself to be varied. In England and Wales, High Court rules already allow for such variations in civil recovery investigations. Subsection (6) provides that account monitoring orders made by a judge entitled to exercise the jurisdiction of the Crown Court have effect as if they were orders of the Crown Court. This is so that it is clear that, if the order is not complied with, contempt proceedings may be brought in the Crown Court. Contempt proceedings are automatically attracted if an order of the High Court is not complied with.
