The Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) on Friday released a different opinion on the draft amending the criminal codes, after DNA and the Prosecutor’s Office have mainly agreed the Justice Ministry’s proposals.
DIICOT argues that the criminal law amendments, if adopted, will not observe the requirements of European Parliament directive and of the Council regarding the extended seizure institution. DIICOT also says that the new draft brings extra restrictions and conditioning unlike the EU standards.
DIICOT has sent its own observations and proposals on the draft amending the criminal codes on April 13.
The organized crime directorate also noticed the need of implementing other law amendments consecutive to other decisions of the Constitutional Court.
“The entire national legislation on seizing the product of the crime, mainly devoted to the <special seizure> and to the <extended seizure> , as they are stipulated in the Criminal Code and Criminal Procedure Code, is requiting a broad law intervention,” DIICOT says in a press release.
The National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA) said on Thursday that the proposals in the draft amending the criminal codes are, in the main, opportune, but certain technical observations are needed, which were sent to the Justice Ministry.
“DNA considers that most of the proposals are opportune, but certain technical observations are needed, and they were sent to the Justice Ministry,” says a DNA release.
