For effective recovery and confiscation of assets jurisdictions should continue the work to

  • Allow Asset Recovery Offices and other competent asset recovery authorities to have a broader and direct access to financial information such as a centralized bank register, tax information and beneficial ownership and shareholders register, both domestic and international.

  • Create the legal framework in order to provide ARO and other competent asset recovery authorities   with the power to (preliminary) freeze bank accounts.

  • Express the need for (EU) legislation on harmonisation of bank account statements and for competent authorities to receive digital updated financial information from financial institutions.

  • Have legislation on cross border exchange of financial information and legal proceedings simplified in order to widen and fasten mutual recognition of diverse domestic restraint and confiscation orders.
