Identification and Quantification of the Proceeds of Bribery
This book is the result of a study on the identification and quantification of the proceeds of active bribery, jointly conducted by the OECD and in the context of the World Bank-UNODC (UN Office on Drugs and Crime) Stolen Asset Recovery (StAR) initiative. It begins by describing and analyzing the legal framework for the treatment of proceeds of active bribery and goes on to explain how to evaluate gains from bribery in order to confiscate or recover the assets.
Why you should read this book
The purpose of this study is to help courts and judicial authorities in pronouncing sentences to confiscate illegal profits. As explained in the preface, “countries should not shy away from seeking the confiscation or the recovery of proceeds of active bribery just because they may be difficult to quantify”. Although quite technical in explaining how to quantify the illegal proceeds of bribery, it also includes practical examples of case law.
