The CCC has today called for the public to share their views on the Criminal Proceeds Confiscation Act 2002 (Qld) (the Act). The Act seeks to remove the financial gain and increase the financial loss associated with illegal activity, whether or not a person has been convicted of an offence due to the activity.
The CCC commenced its review of the Act after successive inquiries have recognised that significant areas for reform exist for a review to consider. Our review is looking at how well the Act operates, and we want to hear your views on the three areas for reform that the review has considered.
Submissions are particularly sought from those agencies involved in administering asset confiscation regimes, legal experts, and those with personal experience of the Act, including people who have had their assets restrained or forfeited.
Noting the time of year, the due date has been extended to Friday 5 January 2024.
At the conclusion of its review, the CCC will publish a report for consideration by the Government.
The CCC is an independent agency combating major crime and reducing corruption for the benefit of the Queensland community.
