A Significant Confiscation in the Law of Jersey

On November last year, Jersey court ordered Curtis Warren to pay £198 million after the drug dealer failed to prove that he has not earned so much amount in his entire criminal life. Though, Curtis referred the case as ridiculous, the court mentioned it will confiscate his entire properties if he failed to pay the whole amount within next 28 days. After investigating the criminal activities and the finances of one of the Europe’s renowned drug smuggler, the court can arrive to this conclusion.

The main charge against the 50 year old former bouncer from Liverpool was cocaine trafficking between 1991 and 1996 that had possibly generated millions. He has a worldwide business of drugs and he supposedly shipped cocaine from South America to Europe several times and managed to avoid punishments.
