Goal 5: Remove assets from criminal organizations and fund and support security
programs through the use of seized property and assets.

Behind Schedule

A draft of the Asset Forfeiture Law was presented by the Executive Branch in November, 2012, yet has still not been approved by the Legislative Assembly. During this reporting period, the USG has made decided efforts to promote passage of this legislation, including subject matter exchanges with experts from Guatemala and Colombia. These exchanges provided technical assistance to legislators regarding how having this type of normative legislation would benefit the country. The USG continued to provide technical assistance to the Attorney General’s office to improve the functioning of the Financial Investigation Unit and its ability to pursue financial crimes such as money laundering and the discovery of criminally or illicitly derived assets. Once legislation is passed and implementing agencies are clearly defined, the USG will work with the GOES to develop systems to manage seized assets. The USG will train police and prosecutors on asset tracing and coordinated pre-seizure planning and detection of worthwhile illicit assets subject to seizure and forfeiture under existing laws. However, significant delays are foreseen in the joint Asset Forfeiture program, a training regiment, and the contracting of Subject Matter Experts in Asset Forfeiture supported by the INL until the necessary legislation is passed.

5 Nevertheless, institutional capacities for the financial investigation of money laundering should be improved under currently existing laws.
