Crime: Asset Seizures

Volume 688: debated on Tuesday 23 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What assets have been seized in South Armagh since 1 January; and how many prosecutions have followed as a result. [HL444]

A full answer could be provided only at a disproportionate cost.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland has had a number of successes in County Armagh, including three seizures of counterfeit goods and counterfeiting equipment to the value of £146,317. Fifteen prosecution files have been submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions as a result of activity at Jonesborough Market; however, none of these has yet been through the court.
