County Armagh brothers surrender £5.7million of assets

Three County Armagh brothers, who had £8.2million worth of assets seized in 2007, have agreed to surrender property and other assets worth £5.7million to the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca). From the BBC report.

Soca said that the men had made millions from years of cross-border fuel smuggling. The assets they handed over include 12 homes in Belfast and south Armagh, three offices and building land both in NI and in the Republic of Ireland. Monies totalling more than £870,000 and the proceeds from the sale of two houses are included in the Consent Order, granted on Wednesday. The civil action began in 2005.
