Reading v Attorney-General [1949]

British army NCO accepted bribes whilst stationed
abroad.
British authorities seized £20k from him and he later petitioned
to recover it.
Although he had obtained money wrongfully he argued
this did not entitle British government to claim it.
House of Lords held that argument failed because as an
NCO he was in a fiduciary relation to the Crown and was therefore under a duty
to account for profit wrongfully made.
