The Director of Public Prosecutions v Grigore Badarau
Dublin Circuit Criminal Court
Her Honour Judge Pauline Codd
On 18 December 2020 Judge Codd ordered the forfeiture to the Exchequer, pursuant to Section 39 of the Criminal Justice Act 1994, of cash amounting to €9,000 which had been seized and detained on 10 March 2018 by Revenue Officers at Dublin Airport. The cash was ordered to be forfeited as the Court was satisfied that it was proven on the balance of probabilities to represent the proceeds of crime or was intended for use in criminal conduct.
