Peter Martin had no declared income but lived a lavish lifestyle and refurbished his home to a very high standard, using the proceeds of crime which represents money made from other people’s misery. We are committed to seizing all assets that criminals have gained as a result of crime. It is not acceptable that criminals benefit from illegal activities and we will relentlessly pursue them through the courts to ensure all their money is taken. By doing this we will show criminals that they will not benefit from crime and hopefully deter others from entering a life of crime."
