    Default Courts rule that CAB may now seize family homes.

    I've no problem with this whatsoever.
    In the past palatial houses paid for by proceeds of crime or drugs, could not be touched under the Constitutional protection of the family home.
    This ruling will pave the way for several homes to be seized, and a further shake down of criminals and narco-capitalists.
    They'll just have to rent or join the housing list like the rest of the country.
    CAB gets clearance to seize family homes of gangsters - National News - Independent.ie
    My only caveat is that I hope this ruling is used with the same vigour in white collar crime cases.
    Oh, to see some bankers, developers or politicians having to rent some 3 bed semi in a sink estate.

    Will it cover any of our criminal bankers?

    I think the rule is the asset must be purchased with the proceeds of crime, rather than just taking stuff from people who have committed a crime.

    Don't be fooled. This is a side effect of the legislation to repossess the homes of mortgage owners in arrears. It's a spin on the real issue.

    These houses in question are mortgage free. Bought with cash.
