Regina v El-Kurd: CACD 2001

The defendants had been charged with four conspiracies, each of which was indicted as a conspiracy to commit offences under the 1994 Act on the one hand and under the 1988 Act on the other. The crown accepted that for a conviction for the laundering of the proceeds of drug trafficking, it was necessary to prove that the money was in fact the proceeds of drug crime.
Held: The wording of each alternative depended upon whether the property was the proceeds of drug trafficking or criminal conduct.
