NCA FREEZES £100 MILLION OVER BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION ALLEGATIONS IN LARGEST-EVER UK FREEZING ORDERS

On 14th August, Bloomberg reported that the freezing orders, the largest made under the Criminal Finances Act 2017, were granted at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on August 12th.  An individual linked to the latest orders had £20 million frozen following a hearing in December, but the NCA declined to provide any details that may identify the people linked to the accounts.
