Regina v Shevki and Another: CACD 14 Dec 2000

The making of a confiscation order is part of sentencing. Such an order might be delayed provided the determination was made within six months of conviction. If in the circumstances of the case of an adjournment beyond that period was necessary, whether or not the information gathering process had been completed, an extension of time could be given without invalidating the later order. The two statutory schemes for making such determinations can be reconciled. There was no need to make such a ruling on each occasion the matter was adjourned, once an initial order had been made.
