Greenburg, Theodore S. et al.

The World Bank

Authors from the World Bank and the US Justice Department and judicial system advise to policy makers, legislative drafting groups, investigators, and prosecutors on how to seize property without having to prove that its owner committed a crime. They explain such matters as the global consensus on the need for concerted action, prime imperatives, procedural and evidentiary concepts, organizational considerations and asset management, international cooperation and asset recovery, a cautionary tale from the Bailiwick of Guernsey about obtaining mutual legal assistance, a case from Kuwait, and good practices in Columbia regarding delegation to the executive branch. Legal resources are on the accompanying disk. There is no index.
