Regina v Jagdev: CACD 31 May 2002

The court was considering the terms of a confiscation order. It decided to postpone the decision beyond the six month limit. Questions had arisen about the apparent shift of the burden of proof. Two cases were due to be heard by the Court of Appeal which would affect the issue before the court.
Held: The anticipation of decisions by a senior court could be an exceptional circumstance where further information was required, and which could justify such an adjournment.
