Freeze 'em

Why not give the ICO the power to freeze the company bank accounts and put a lien on all property at the time the judgement is handed down? Even better, when the court case is started, add a lien on all property and bank accounts to prevent disposal of assets afterwards.

It's a bit draconian but we could also look at giving the directors criminal records and putting personal CCJ's against the Directors or owners.

Unless more real power is given to the ICO then it is just a waste of time and (our) money.
