On 15 March, the Basel Institute on Governance said that technical assistance from the Institute in a landmark case of non-conviction based confiscation in Peru has enabled the successful confiscation of around $1 million linked to terrorist financing. The case involves Nelly Marion Evans Risco, a British-Peruvian woman known popularly as “The Nun”. As well as a committed Catholic, Evans was a member of the Shining Path (Sendero Luminoso) terrorist organisation of the 90s. In January, the Peruvian State successfully concluded non-conviction based confiscation proceedings intended to recover the funds, illicit assets held by Evans in a Swiss bank account since 1990. The Peruvian judgement is still pending execution in Switzerland.
