Restraint order discharged after firm’s representations

Peters & Peters advise a wealthy former civil servant of a commonwealth country who was subject to a UK restraint order arising from an investigation into political corruption in his country of origin. The firm persuaded the CPS that the criteria for the restraint order had not been made out as there was no proper evidence that the conduct under investigation was an offence in the UK. The order was promptly discharged without the need for a contested hearing.
