unstar this property answer text <p>Under proceeds of crime legislation, asset sharing and repatriation is ultimately the Government’s decision following the recovery of assets/money under a court order it is a matter of how to then dispose of those recovered moneys. In confiscation cases, the UN Convention Against Corruption requires a full return to victim States and the EU Framework Decision on confiscation orders requires a 50% share in cases in excess of 10,000 Euros.</p><p>There are other bilateral and multilateral international agreements that encourage the sharing of recovered assets. The UK does not require an international agreement to share or repatriate assets and does so on request on an ad hoc basis. The presumption is that 50% is shared with the requesting country. There are few cases so far, but none have been refused.</p><p><br>The Government does not intervene with similar cases involving the Overseas Territories or Crown Dependencies.</p> more like this

This Government has recovered more criminal assets than ever before. Using Proceeds of Crime Act powers, £1.4bn was taken from offenders between April 2010 and March 2017, with many hundreds of millions more frozen.</p><p>Unexplained Wealth Orders (UWOs) were introduced on 31 January 2018. UWOs are an important addition to existing investigation powers under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and compel individuals to explain the sources of their wealth where it is suspected that their lawful income would be insufficient to obtain specified property and they are a non-EEA politically exposed person or suspected of being involved in serious crime.</p><p>The National Crime Agency has secured two UWOs to investigate assets totalling £22m that are believed to ultimately be owned by a politically-exposed person. The assets have also been frozen.</p><p>The Home Office has established a suspicious activity report (SARs) Reform Programme, working with reporters, law enforcement and regulators, to design an effective regime that can make the UK an even more hostile place to move, use or hide illicit finances.</p>

As described in the NCA’s 2017 / 2018 Annual Plan, the remit of the NCA is particularly focused on tackling criminality at ‘the high end of high risk’. High-end money laundering has been identified as one of the top six national priorities for agencies tackling serious and organised crime – accordingly it is a key priority for the NCA. A range of other agencies are involved in investigating and prosecuting money laundering activity.</p><p>Potential money laundering investigations can be identified and triggered in different ways, such as tips, suspicious activity reports, or referrals from regulatory authorities including the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority; or through parallel investigations into a predicate offence where there are suspected proceeds of crime. The NCA does not routinely comment on specific referrals or the number of investigations underway related to particular offences.</p><p>The NCA’s 2017/2018 Annual Plan can be found here: <a href="http://www.nationalcrimeagency.gov.uk/publications/889-nca-annual-plan-2018" target="_blank">www.nationalcrimeagency.gov.uk/publications/889-nca-annual-plan-2018</a></p>
