Confiscation: Hurdles and Best Practices

This lecture was presented as part of a training program for prosecutors and judges in Tallinn, Estonia on March 30, 2023.  It covers four topics: why is it important to include the confiscation of assets in a criminal case; what categories of property can be confiscated; what is the procedure for confiscating assets; and how, structurally, should the responsibility for confiscating assets be assigned among prosecutors, criminal investigators, and the Financial Intelligence Unit.
