Property Abandoned, Can I Re-Let?

That’s great. You need to protect yourself so it does not look like an illegal eviction ( person could be serving at HM discretion etc).

If it was me I would contact my solicitor to make sure I have done everything I can to make sure that I am not the victim of entrapment.
