Some of Liverpool’s more notorious individuals feature on the latest watchlist designed to restrict the movements and finances of established criminals.
The restrictions, aimed exclusively at those who have been involved in serious organised crime, impose a range of strict lifestyle restrictions. The restrictions take effect when individuals are released from prison.
The restrictions are designed to prevent hardcore criminals from returning to their old businesses after they have left jail and include Serious Crime Prevention Orders (SCPO), Financial Reporting Orders (FRO) and and Travel Reporting Orders (TRO).
Warren, now 58, was jailed for 13 years for a plot to flood Jersey with cannabis. He was later handed another ten years sentence after refusing to pay an extraordinary £198m confiscation order.
Interpol’s former most wanted will be subject to a SCPO when he is released from prison, meaning his access to the internet, cash and ability to travel will be severely restricted.

Brothers Jason and Ian Fitzgibbon, who have now been released from prison, face a raft of restrictions on their financial activity.
They were both jailed for 14-and-a-half and 16 years respectively after admitting a plot to import £7m of heroin from Turkey.
Both brothers are subject to a SCPO, TRO and FRO.
Danny Smith, a one time associate of the Fitzgibbons, is also on the NCA list.
Smith was jailed alongside the Fitzgibbons in 2013 for his role in their drug business.

North Liverpool man Anthony Geraghty was jailed for 20 years in 2011 for his part in a massive collaboration with Colombian drug cartels.
Much of the conspiracy was run from a simple city centre telephone box and saw the Liverpool gang working with high-ranking London crooks and international drug dealers as they looked to flood the streets with 40 tonnes of cocaine from Columbia.
Geraghty , now released, is now subject to a SCPO, FRO and TRO. Gerard Shields, jailed for 14 years for his part in the import business, is now subject to a FRO.
Vauxhall man Paul Taylor, who headed up the Liverpool end of the conspiracy, will be subject to a SCPO on his eventual release.
A spokesperson for the NCA said: “The NCA rigorously manages these orders in a partnership approach with HM Prison & Probation Service and others and pursues enforcement action through the CPS if people breach the terms.”
Alison Abbott, Head of Lifetime Management at the NCA said: “Many career criminals regard prison as an interruption which rarely marks the end of their involvement in organised crime. This is why the NCA has a policy of Lifetime Management.
“Through the NCA’s Lifetime Management programme we use Serious Crime Prevention Orders, Travel Restriction Orders and Financial Reporting Orders, as an extra layer of prevention.
“They ensure we firmly have these individuals on our radar, especially after prison, and anything that suggests that they’re slipping into old ways can be detected early on.”
A spokesperson for the NCA added: “Anyone with relevant information on individuals who appear on the list should contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via the Crimestoppers website.
