Dover Magistrates’ Court has imposed default sentences of 7 years and 4 years in respect of two unpaid confiscation orders, which totalled nearly £4 million.
Between September 2006 and December 2011, Anthony Rex Dymott, aged 58 from West Malling in Kent, was convicted of drug trafficking, money laundering, deception and fraud.
On 7th December 2012 Chelmsford Crown Court granted two confiscation orders against Dymott for £2,644,602.40 and £699,521.02. These amounts representing the sum of his benefit from his criminal conduct.
Dymott has only repaid £69,917.24 from the combined orders. With interest accruing at £711.06 per day, the current amount outstanding on the orders is £3,969,700.12.
Jon Rainer, Financial Investigation Manager for the National Crime Agency, said: “Dymott has been involved in serious criminality over an extended period, and clearly thought he would be able to get away without paying this huge financial order.
“He will now have to serve another 7 years, as well as still owing the full amount of the order and the interest on money owed.”
