The client had been convicted of being concerned in a conspiracy to pass or tender counterfeit currency and conspiracy to launder the proceeds of criminal property.

Following detailed arguments advanced in the client’s response on the “calculation of benefit” the crown conceded and agreed an order of £58,138.80.
