The fugitive wife of a "fat cat banker" who's spent £16m in Harrods is battling to keep her London mansion after the UK's first use of a new power to combat international corruption.

The woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, is challenging a demand by the National Crime Agency that she reveal the source of her wealth or face losing her British properties.

The hearing at the High Court is the first time the agency has used an "Unexplained Wealth Order" to force a suspected corrupt foreign official and his family to account for their riches.

 

Spent 16 million in harrods alone. It’s beyond me where you would start with this. 

Lets repeat. 16 million. In a glorified department store. How?  Wtf did she buy?

Hmmm. That sounds like the sort of swamp draining legislation that is long overdue. 

You'll find it only applies to wives of Nigerian princes.

Came in in February and this is the first time they've used it. All HMRC do according to the article is Google the name of the person, give me that job I could catch 20 a day.

Sorry, I don’t like this idea at all. The state can seize your assets arbitrarily and it is for you to justify they can’t?

British values of ‘home is castle’ and ‘live and let live’ seem to be eroded now.

Dressing up the sequestration attack with eye catching claims about Harrods shopping is an easy way to justify the heist to the masses.

You can bet your life that sooner or later it will be used to denude ordinary people like us. Once a bureaucrat is given a bit of power you can bet they will abuse it. 

There are so many examples, where to start. 

How about HMRC with their stance on bringing in tax paid cigarettes, wines and spirits from other countries in the EU. Perfectly legal and what the EU stated was one of its main objectives, to allow EU citizens to choose where to buy goods from even if it allowed them to buy them from countries with lower rates of tax. That didn't stop HMRC confiscating and destroying cigarettes, wines and spirits bought in to the UK on the pretext that they were not for personal use, together with the vehicle that was used to transport them. Eventually the EU court held that HMRC were acting incorrectly and were ordered to stop.

Never been to Daylesford Organics, have you?

That figure would barely cover a bunch of carrots and a packet of micropig sausages.

Tat peddlers have worked out many ways of parting money from the rich and tasteless. The most successful method is to place the words 'organic' or 'artisan' in front of any old shit.

im pleased to see my home village rocester rip off yupee bastards down south.

"Guilty unless you can prove yourself innocent" is an absolutely atrocious principle to enshrine into law.

Wouldn’t you go to one of the posh jewellers for that?

didn't say she was smart :)

in fact she's probably incredibly dumb, flaunting her wealth so opennly that the authorities were forced to act when they would rather not, if you get my drift.

      Homeowners release record £3 billion equity in 2017
      https://www.telegraph.co.uk/financial-services/retirement-solutions/equity-release-service/equity-release-schemes-popularity
      It is clear that unlocking housing wealth has an increasingly i mportant role to play in helping older
      people pay for later life. Analysis from the Equity Release Council earlier this year estimated that
      total homeowner equity in England has reached an unprecedented £2.6 trillion, with £1.8 trillion
      belonging to over-55 households. Customer data suggests that those using equity release have
      homes worth around 25% more than was the case just three years ago
