Her Honour Judge Melanie Greally


On 1 July 2021, Dublin Circuit Criminal Court ordered the forfeiture to the Exchequer of cash amounting to €4,555 pursuant to Section 39, Criminal Justice Act 1994, which had been seized and detained on 24 January 2019 by Revenue Enforcement Officers at Dublin Port. 

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.
