Debt Relief Act (Northern Ireland) 2010

Article 208P: Concealment or falsification of documents

This Article provides that a failure to produce books, papers or other documents to the Official Receiver is an offence. Similarly, preventing such records being produced, or their concealment, destruction or falsification will also be an offence. The offence may be committed before the application for the DRO has been made, and during both the application process and the moratorium period, and it is irrelevant that the order may have been revoked subsequent to an offence being committed.
