A case in which leading Criminal Law barrister Michael Burrows QC prosecutes sees drugs baron Karl Wilson ordered repay £400,000 after admitting to running a drugs business for seven years.
The order came after Judge Martin Walsh ruled, at Manchester Crown Court, that Wilson made over £10m from this drugs business.
It was heard that Wilson had assets of £300,000 bought with drugs money. His assets included a villa and a partially built property in Jamaica and a bungalow in Wolverhampton.
Wilson launched his drugs business in 2002 before fleeing to Jamaica two months before officers smashed the operation in February 2009.
