Framework for the Return of Assets from Corruption and Crime in Kenya (FRACCK)
The Governments of the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Jersey have agreed with the Government of Kenya to establish the Framework for the Return of Assets from Corruption and Crime in Kenya (FRACCK). This initiative commits the Partners to key principles related to international asset recovery, such as transparency and accountability, and mutual consent.
The FRACCK is not intended to be exclusive. Other countries that have anti-corruption laws and have identified proceeds of corruption that they are willing to return to Kenya may join the FRACCK as Partners with the consent of existing Partners.
The Framework is the first of its kind and a significant achievement in relation to the confiscation and return of stolen assets. It is intended to act as example of the innovative approaches that the international community can explore to achieve meaningful progress in the recovery of stolen assets.
The text was signed by Switzerland, the UK and Jersey in June, August and December 2018, respectively.
