Telli v Revenue and Customs Prosecutions Office: CA 21 Dec 2007

The appellant had completed that proportion of a total of 22 years’ imprisonment, which he was required to serve for drug trafficking offences. But he remained in prison serving a default term for failure to pay the whole of the sum of pounds 3,458,806, which he was required to pay by virtue of a confiscation order. The default term was originally 10 years’ imprisonment, reduced on appeal to 8 years, and further reduced, pursuant to s.79 of the Magistrates Court Act 1980, on payment of a portion of the total sum ordered, to a period of approximately 5.6 years.
Application for certificate of inadequacy.
