No. 1 of 2005 - Proceeds of Crime (Amendment) Act 2005
What does this law do?
The purpose of this Act is to make further provision in relation to the recovery and disposal of proceeds of crime. This involves amending four different acts as follows: Proceeds of Crime Act 1996, Criminal Assets Bureau Act 1996, Criminal Justice Act 1994 Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Act 2001. The Act will substantially bolster the powers of the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) in the continuing battle to target the proceeds of all types of crime and will extend those powers to the proceeds of white-collar crime and corruption. The substantial provisions of the Act extend the proceeds of crime legislation to cover foreign criminality and corrupt enrichment. In addition, there are a number of technical provisions relating to court procedures, search powers and evidence.
