I do not agree, not least because section 6 of the Human Rights Act 1998 says that everything we do should be ECHR compatible. Someone cannot forfeit wholly innocent property and remain within the context of the ECHR. If there are any disputes, the provisions in the Bill offer greater safeguards than in the original Bill. As was indicated, the Police (Property) Act 1997 also covers this point.
