He will lose his £900,000 home at Barnfield, Chatley Furlong, £373,000 in cash, and £17,000 he gifted to someone else.
On January 21, 2011 he was sentenced to nine years, reduced to seven on appeal, in prison after being convicted of concealing criminal property, converting criminal property and obtaining a money transfer by deception.
