Regina v Lingham: CACD 2 Jun 2000

Although a court normally has the power to determine when and how to deal with its own cases, a Crown Court dealing with an application for confiscation of assets under the Act, had to determine the case within the six month time limit unless it was satisfied that the circumstances were exceptional and an adjournment was required for the collection of further information.
