Money Laundering and Forfeiture Training for Foreign Prosecutors

These are the texts of two lectures given as part of a training seminar for prosecutors from Serbia, Moldova, Ukraine and Lithuania at the CEELI Institute in Prague on December 11, 2019.  The first covers money laundering and discusses the different types of money laundering statutes, the motives behind money laundering, and the methodologies that money launderers employ, but it focuses on the elements of a typical money laundering statute and the types of evidence the prosecutor would need to establish each one.

The second lecture covers asset forfeiture, focusing on three issues: why include forfeiture in a criminal case, what property may be forfeited, and the procedure for including a forfeiture judgment in a criminal case.  It concludes with a list of circumstances in which it is necessary for the prosecutor to use non-conviction-based (NCB) forfeiture.
