The Commonwealth has dropped its attempt to seize the proceeds of a revealing memoir from convicted terrorist David Hicks titled Guantanamo, My Journey.
The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions had sought to have the profits of the book declared proceeds of crime.
In the Supreme Court of NSW this morning, Lionel Robberds, QC, told Justice Peter Garling the Director had yesterday decided not to continue the case.
Previous orders made to freeze the profits were vacated.
Mr Hicks was in court for the decision.
