Alleged fuel smugglers to hand over assets
Three alleged fuel smugglers have agreed to surrender assets, including property in Northern Ireland and Bulgaria, to settle civil proceedings against them.
The Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) said it was also granted a High Court recovery order for lorries, a car and bank accounts as part of its case against the Co Armagh men.
In its application SOCA claimed brothers Neil Vallely (37) and Gavin Vallely (29), of Meadowvale, Newtownhamilton, and their associate Liam Davidson (36), from Cullyhanna Road in the village, derived the majority of their assets through fuel smuggling, tax evasion and money laundering.
They have agreed to hand over assets including four properties in Co Armagh, one in Bulgaria and seven bank accounts.
