It is something of a common-sense view that we should make offenders pay for their crimes by confiscating any financial benefits they have accrued for offending. There are strategies in many countries but all too often they have fallen short of public expectations to deliver large sums of money or to make offenders feel the threat is a real one. In this webinar we explore the reasons why. It will discuss:
• Why is the confiscation of assets a complicated process?
• What is the real potential of schemes to confiscate offenders’ ill-gotten gains?
• Where can we look for good practice?
