I understand that the Crown Prosecution Service does not keep records of the nationality of persons who are subject to a confiscation order under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and that to obtain this information would involve disproportionate cost. I also understand that Her Majesty's Customs and Excise have obtained three confiscation orders under the Act, none of which relates to the bribery of a foreign public official.
