On 5 July, the Basel Institute on Governance reported that 25 practitioners from 12 countries gathered online on 29 June for the first virtual meeting of the new Knowledge Community on Asset Recovery in Latin America. The Community provides a collaborative space for interaction between leading practitioners in the field of asset recovery and international judicial cooperation in criminal matters – to develop a critical mass of knowledge on asset recovery, with an emphasis on non-conviction based confiscation, and to disseminate this knowledge among both members and the wider asset recovery community. Practitioners discussed a case study illustrating how Peru had applied its non-conviction based forfeiture legislation, extinción de dominio, to achieve a confiscation order for assets intended to fund the Shining Path terrorist organisation.
