Freezing and confiscation orders

26-09-2018

The European 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 I plenary session on the agreed text reached in trilogue negotiations.
