LITHUANIA LEGALISES ASSET SEIZURE FOR SERIOUS CRIMES

On 1 April, LRT reported that the Lithuania parliament has adopted a civil asset forfeiture law with amendments proposed by the President.  The law will allow seizure of assets if a person is part of a criminal group, is suspected, charged or convicted for serious crimes, including human trafficking, robbery, extortion as well as corruption crimes linked to smuggling and drugs.
