Civil Liberties Committee makes it easier to confiscate crooks’ assets EU wide

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 10 Mag 2013

Draft rules to make it easier for national authorities to freeze and confiscate criminals’ assets across the EU were beefed up by the Civil Liberties Committee on Tuesday. However, MEPs also sought to safeguard the right to a fair trial. They also called upon member states to use confiscated assets to fight crime and for social projects. The draft law, which must still be negotiated with national governments, is part of a broader EU strategy to fight fraud and corruption.”‘Follow the money across the border’ should be the driving priority if we want to trace funding for organised crime and terrorism effectively and efficiently. Confiscating criminals’ assets, even where a criminal conviction is not possible, is clearly necessary to recover the proceeds of crime”, said lead MEP Monica Luisa Macovei (EPP, RO).Today, less than 1% of the proceeds of crimes such as drug trafficking, counterfeiting, human trafficking and small arms smuggling are frozen and confiscated. Most of this “dirty money” is laundered and channelled into the licit economy, often in several member states.The new rules would enable national authorities quickly to identify and trace such assets – such as cash held in bank accounts, real estate, vehicles, livestock, artworks, company shares, businesses, and collector’s items – and to freeze, manage and confiscate them consistently across the EU.
