Measures to prevent money-laundering
The Convention requires the State parties to establish as criminal offenses, a number of acts of corruption, if they are not already considered criminal acts in accordance with domestic law. The criminalization of some of them is mandatory under the Convention. What is new about the Convention against Corruption is that it addresses not only the main forms of this phenomenon, such as bribery and embezzlement of public funds but also actions in support of corruption, obstruction of justice, abuse of power, and concealment and laundering of proceeds of crime.
Chapter ІІІ. Criminalization
and Law Enforcement
Chapter IV envisages specific types of international cooperation, such as mutual legal assistance in the collection and transmission of evidence, extradition of criminals, as well as the tracking, freezing, arrest, and confiscation of proceeds of corruption. Unlike previously concluded international treaties, the Convention stipulates mutual legal assistance even in the absence of dual criminality, if such assistance is not related to coercive measures.
Chapter IV.
International cooperation
The relevant part of the Convention specifies how cooperation and assistance should be carried out, how the proceeds of corruption should be returned to the requesting State, and how the interests of other victims or legal owners should be taken into account.
