The right hon. and learned Gentleman’s fictional Mr. McNulty is covered by the amendments to the 2000 Act contained in clause 34. Any other individual who, for whatever reason, has their property captured under a forfeiture order, but who has due rights and legal ownership and can justify that, can get due process from the courts. Your  Mr. McNulty can waddle up to the court—if he is anything like me—present himself and the documents that say that it is his car that has been captured by the garage owner who happens to be a terrorist and, under the amendments in new section 23B to the Terrorism Act 2000, can also get due process from the courts.
