Proceeds of Crime confiscation orders (FOI)
Proceeds of Crime confiscation orders (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 27 April 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
In relation to the enforcement in Jersey of external confiscation orders under the Proceeds of Crime (Enforcement of Confiscation Orders) (Jersey) Regulations 2008 (the "Regulations") please confirm:
(i) The total monies confiscated since the Regulations came into force; and
(ii) Of those total monies, what proportion has been retained in Jersey, including that paid into the Criminal Offences Confiscation Fund?
Has any agreement been reached between Jersey and Indonesia with regard to the sharing of monies that have or might be confiscated or seized in Jersey and if so, when and what were the terms of such agreement?
The Criminal Offences Confiscations Fund ("COCF") was created under Article 24 of the Proceeds of Crime (Jersey) Law 1999. The Proceeds of Crime and Terrorism (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Jersey) Law 2014 came into effect on 4 August 2014. Subject to certain saving provisions, this repealed the Drug Trafficking Offences (Jersey) Law 1988 and prescribed that any monies in the Drug Trafficking Confiscations Fund ("DTCF") be transferred to the COCF. Where relevant, information in respect of DTCF transactions have been included for consistency.
Details of the amounts received, and payments made in accordance with asset-sharing agreements up to 2017 and 2019 are publicly available on www.gov.je in response to previous Freedom of Information requests. Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has therefore been applied.
