Criminal Confiscation in Latvia

The following document is a presentation on the use of criminal and non-conviction-based confiscation under Latvia law.  The first part discusses the statutes authorizing the confiscation of criminal proceeds and instrumentalities as part of the sentence in a criminal case, and the second part discusses doing the same when no criminal prosecution is possible.  In each case, I discuss gaps in the statutory scheme that may have to be addressed in subsequent legislation.  The relevant Latvia statutes are posted as well.
