FREEZING AND CONFISCATION ORDERS IN THE EU

On 26th September, the EU Parliament Research Service provided a briefing in preparation for the October Plenary of the Parliament.  It says that the Commission proposed, in 2016, a new Regulation to improve the EU legal framework on the freezing and confiscation of criminal assets in cross-border cases.  It covers new types of confiscation orders, speeds up procedures and ensures victims’ rights to compensation and restitution.  The European Parliament is due to vote during its October plenary session on the agreed text reached in trilogue negotiations.
