NCA SEIZES £4 MILLION OF GOLD BARS AT HEATHROW SAID TO BE EN ROUTE FROM CAYMAN ISLANDS TO SWITZERLAND

The Mail Online reported on 20th July that around 104 kg of gold was on its way to Switzerland from the Cayman Islands when it was seized.  It had previously arrived in the Caymans from Venezuela on a private jet.  The shipment was seized last month but magistrates have now allowed the NCA to hold it under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.  NCA believe that this shipment was linked to drugs cartels operating out of South America.
