Good to see progress by the CAB on this.THE Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) has secured a judgment for more than 600,000 against a convicted IRA man who was suspected of money laundering after he was found with more than 94,000 in a Daz washing powder box.
I'd love to have been in the court to hear the defence of "well I had 94k in my daz box, and the guards didn't plant it, but sher I've LOADS of daz boxes, how can I know what's in every one of them?". They looked through 5 years of financial records and identified a huge amount that couldn't be accounted for.
It's good to hear the success stories of the department, I always feel we need to see more prominence from them. A CAB investigation should follow any serious suspicion of illegal income.
