Angus Bunyan has recently appeared in an important environmental crime case, instructed as junior on behalf of the Environment Agency. The case resulted in the largest POCA order the Agency has obtained against an individual. Hugh O'Donnell had already been sentenced to four years for waste crime and money laundering offences, and last week was ordered to pay £917,000 with a default sentence of four and a half years.
Angus was briefed in the case by the Environment Agency because of his expertise regarding POCA issues and for his wider experience of serious and complex crime. The case was an example of the Agency seeking to indict individuals with money laundering offences and to recover criminal proceeds through restraint and confiscation.
