According to the law, the property is seized to ensure criminal proceedings, a civil claim in criminal proceedings, confiscation or special confiscation. The seizure can be applied to property owned, used, or disposed of by a suspect, defendant, convict, third parties, or legal entity that can be affected by criminal justice measures following a decision by court or investigating judge.
Third parties whose property may be seized include persons who have received or acquired the property from a suspect, defendant, or convict free of charge or for a sum significantly below the market value and knew or should have known that the purpose of such transfer is getting profits from property obtained in crime, concealment of crime, and/or avoidance of seizure. The said information in respect of a third party should be established by judicial means on the basis of sufficiency of evidence.
The law establishes that the reason for the seizure of property is based on a decision of investigating judge or court having enough reasons to believe that the property is a subject, means, or instrument of crime, is acquired in crime, is profits received in crime, or acquired via profits received in crime.
