Banking confidentiality and lack of experience, obstacles to illicit asset recovery (UNICRI)

Banking confidentiality and the lack of insights to and experiences in the use of new asset forfeiture mechanisms are the main issues facing Arab Spring countries (Tunisia, Libya and Egypt), said a summary document on the “Pilot Project to Support Arab Spring Countries (Tunisia, Libya and Egypt) Implement Asset Recovery”.

Presented Tuesday in Gammarth (northern suburbs of Tunis), on the closing of the Regional Forum organised on the initiative of the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) in co-operation with the European Union (EU), on the theme: “What new approaches to capturing illicit assets”, the document is a technical support aimed at strengthening the capacities of countries concerned with locating, freezing and recovering illicit assets. The document also highlights the importance of international co-operation in the recovery of stolen assets.

In his remarks at the closing of the Forum, Mabrouk Korchid, Minister of State Property and Land Affairs said despite Tunisia’s efforts to recover assets stolen abroad, the results remain below expectations.

“Tunisia has submitted several judicial and administrative requests to recover its assets, but it has been confronted with several procedural problems”, like the non-receipt of final judgments.

He added that his department is working in co-operation with all parties involved in this process, to diversify the methods of confiscation, through the adoption of an approach based on economic and legislative aspects.
