International Forfeitures

This lecture was presented at the Dubai Judicial Institute to introduce the alternative ways of forfeiting property located in one country that is derived from a crime committed in another. It uses two cases to illustrate the process — one involving using US civil (non-conviction based) forfeiture law to forfeit property located outside of the US but derived from a crime committed in the US against US victims by a person resisting extradition, and one involving the use of the same law to forfeit property derived from a foreign offense that was laundered in the US and then transferred to a third country.
