Eleanor Mawrey successfully prosecutes a £8.8m Money Laundering Regulations 2007 case on behalf of HMRC. Mr Nkiwane had been running a Money Service Business, under the trading name Iron Rod Enterprises in Luton, Beds. The business had transferred almost £8.8m to Zimbabwe since September 2010 and despite warnings by HMRC had failed to register. Mr Nkiwane pleaded guilty in what is one of the few prosecutions to date for failing to register under the Money Laundering Regulations and received a 12 months suspended sentence. Interestingly, Mr Nkiwane had previously had a conviction for rape overturned by the Court of Appeal, having already served over 3 years of his sentence and his case is now one of the leading authorities regarding the test for compensation following a quashed conviction: R (on the application of Nkiwane) Sec of State of Justice  EWHC 2899
