If a person is accused of supplying or importing controlled substances, then money-laundering offences are also routinely charged.
Being convicted of a drugs related or money-laundering offence can have serious and far-reaching consequences as a result of subsequent confiscation proceedings, which can impact upon every aspect of an individual’s home and family life.
