Zayd Ahmed successfully discharges account freezing order for multi- million pound distributor


Zayd Ahmed was instructed on a private basis to advice and discharge an account freezing order made by HMRC regarding suspected money laundering offences.

Zayd was able to draft a skeleton argument and provide documentation which proved that firstly the monies were not a recoverable property and there was no basis to presume, on the balance of probabilities that the monies involved were intended by any person for use in unlawful conduct.

The HMRC very quickly confirmed it would not oppose our application to discharge the account freezing order after these representations.

Zayd has experience in all matters involving civil recovery, cash forfeiture and seizure and POCA related matters.
