Modjiri, Regina v: CACD 22 Apr 2010

The court was asked whether, where the convicted person is one of a number of registered owners of land, each of whom has a beneficial tenancy in common in the land, and the land cannot be sold, mortgaged or leased without the consent of all the proprietors, the convicted person’s beneficial interest has any value for the purposes of a confiscation order if all the co-owners do not agree to any sale.
Held: The prosecutor’s appeal succeeded. The convicted person’s beneficial interest had a value because the property could be ordered to be sold pursuant to an application to the Court by the convicted person under section 14 of the 1996 Act.
