Civil forfeiture under section 56 of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 (“AMLA”) is a unique feature of AMLA’s enforcement regime as it allows for the forfeiture of property even when there is no prosecution or conviction for money laundering or terrorism financing offences.
This webinar will analyse the requirements that must be fulfilled for an application for civil forfeiture to be successful, and the trend of the courts in recent decisions on the subject matter. It will also explore the options that are open to parties facing civil forfeiture applications, or parties who have rights or interests in the property intended to be seized.
