" Eight years ago, a father from Co Clare sold his home under pressure to repay an extortionate loan to an illegal money lender. Now the shoe is on the other foot, as the loan shark faces the prospect of losing her properties to the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB)".
from the article.
There are numerous view points. One is that if the law is broken, then it behooves the state to collect the monies owed. On the other hand, (and similar to forfeiture laws in the US) there is an inherent inclination for the state to seize goods to boost its coffers by reducing the evidential burdens.
So justice would seem to split between horns of either the collectivist or individualist imperative.
