A JAILED Romsey businessman is facing attempts to seize some of his assets.

Jonathan Nuttall, 50, of Embley Lane, was jailed at the Old Bailey last month for eight years and two months for orchestrating a bomb plot against two lawyers in London.

Nuttall, a former owner of the White Horse Hotel in Romsey, was suspected of being involved in an international money laundering ring, a trial heard.

Now the National Terrorist Financial Investigation Unit has applied for a continued detention of seized cash "namely £10,635.54 sterling (estimated), the applicant having reasonable grounds for suspecting that it is recoverable property, that is property obtained through unlawful conduct intended for use in unlawful conduct... under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002", according to the court record.

A hearing was held at Westminster Magistrates Court on September 25 and adjourned until October 24. Nuttall was not present at the hearing.
