Director of Public Prosecution Christopher Pryde had filed an ex parte originating summons under the Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Act in the Civil High Court last month.

The DPP had also filed an application to register a warrant to seize the property and that a US warrant to seize the Amadea be registered.
