Compensation for Tobacco Smuggling Confiscation

HM Revenue & Customs are carrying out a review of cases which have been wrongly decided and Milton Firman is campaigning on behalf of claimants

PRLog - Sep. 26, 2011 - CHEADLE, U.K. -- Recent case law has revealed the fact that cases involving confiscation arising from illegal tobacco smuggling have been decided on the wrong law i.e. based upon old regulations.  The decision of the court in R v Chambers has led HM Revenue & Customs to announce that they are reviewing many cases which may well have resulted in wrong sentences.  Campaigner and legal adviser, Milton Firman,  who has 30 years experience in the legal profession, is at the forefront of the campaign for compensation and said today:

"This is a shambles.  Peoples' lives have been ruined as a result of them being wrongly penalised and heavily fined.  Only the actual importer was ever liable for the duty under the new regulations...It is absolutely vital that anyone who was fined since about 2001 should come forward now as they may well be entitled to substantial compensation."
