image of Common Law Legal Systems Model Legislative Provisions on Money Laundering, Terrorism Financing, Preventive Measures and Proceeds of Crime

Corruption undermines the rule of law, good governance, and sustainable growth and development. Most countries have prohibited all forms of corruption, yet corruption persists due largely to a lack of appropriate strategies and structures to inhibit it. Such strategies include effective and comprehensive legal frameworks to prevent, punish and take the profit out of corruption.

The Common Law Legal Systems Model Legislative Provisions aims to enable Commonwealth countries to evaluate measures that can be incorporated into domestic law to prevent, detect, and effectively sanction money laundering and terrorism financing and to recover the proceeds of crime.

Unexplained Wealth Orders

These provisions are based upon the unexplained wealth provisions enacted by the Australian Commonwealth (Proceeds of Crime Act 2002), Western Australia (Criminal Property Confiscation Act 2000), Northern Territory (Criminal Property Forfeiture Act 2002), New South Wales (Criminal Assets Recovery Act 1990) and South Australia (Serious and Organised Crime (Unexplained Wealth) Act 2009). They are included here for completeness, and some states may find them useful. However, they are not an essential part of the asset recovery arsenal and are optional.
