Irish High Court seizes more than $ 56 million in bitcoin from a drug dealer

Recently, the High Court of Ireland ruled the confiscation of bitcoin worth 52 million euros (about 56 million U.S. dollars) by a drug dealer, saying it was the proceeds of crime and should be confiscated. Local media Independent.ie reported today that the court found Clifton Collins suspected of drug trafficking. Collins did not dispute the application of the Criminal Assets Board (CAB) for forfeiture of its assets. It is reported that the police found a large amount of marijuana in Collins' car during a traffic interception, so he began investigating him.
