seized their considerable assets for an immediate payback
But what some of the very BEST crooked business people, A) make sure their Limited co owns very little to loose if sued, i.e.: rent the building, any machinery, vehicles and B) make sure the houses, cottages, cars, bank accounts are in their wives or children's names. So unless a court can link the whole family into criminal activity, the bulk of the assets can't be touched and the crooks, on the face of it, have nothing.
