Session

Law

Description

Confiscation of assets with criminal origin represents one of the greatest challenges for the rule of law, especially in the countries undergoing transition, it nevertheless represents an indispensable contemporary step and a way to destroy the financial power of criminal groups.

In this paper among others I will treat the necessity of confiscation of assets that have criminal origin as a form of fight and prevention of organized crime, the legal provisions that regulate this process and the initiative for a special law in Kosovo.

In addition, as a part of this paper, I will include the official data on confiscation of assets that have criminal origin in Kosovo, the problems and challenges that were faced by institutions of Republic of Kosovo in implementation of this process.

Thus far Kosovo has failed to confiscate assets with criminal and unjustifiable origin also due to the corrupt criminal law system in Kosovo.

Taking into account the low degree of confiscation of assets with criminal origin and the continuous scandals in the justice system, the vetting process is indispensable for cleaning of judicial, prosecution system as well as Kosovo Police.

Keywords:

Confiscation of assets, criminal origin, organized crime, asset confiscation.
