Abstract

Examines the Court of Appeal judgment in R. v Powell (Jacqueline) on whether the controlling directors/shareholders of an insolvent company, who had been convicted of offences connected with the wrongful disposal of controlled waste, could be found personally liable under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 for the costs of cleaning up the company's polluted site, applying the Petrodel evasion principle on the piercing of the corporate veil.
