Detective Inspector Tim Flint, of GMP’s Economic Crime Unit, said: “We work to put a stop to criminal’s finances as this can often be used to further criminality and violent organised crime in our communities.
"We will continue and carry on targeting those suspected to be involved in money laundering and fraud and aim to seize their assets and cash so they can be reinvested into the communities of Greater Manchester and funnelled to those who need it through The Asset Recovery Incentivisation Scheme.”
