UK: BUSINESSMAN SUES POLICE FOR ALLEGED MISCONDUCT AFTER £1.6 MILLION IN ASSETS FROZEN

On 30 March, The Independent reported that a businessman – Ildar Sharipov, the owner of an international currency business – is suing a Merseyside police for alleged misconduct in the handling of a case against him, in what has been described as one of the biggest legal actions of its kind in this country.  A court order was obtained in April 2018 without his knowledge.  Around £1 million of the frozen funds has since been returned to him, and he is now seeking a judicial review into police conduct in his case and for the rest of the funds to be returned.   Sharipov claims that a Nigeria-linked fraudster had used a foreign currency platform, Grizzio, to carry out a car and air ticket scam, and he had no knowledge of what had taken place until the police action started.
