The ill-gotten gains will not return to the citizens!
The real property confiscated by the justice will not be will not be made available for associations or social enterprises!
This legal evolution is asked for by associations that fight against serious crime such as Anticor (Anti-corruption association) and Crim’HALT as well as the French Chamber of social economy.
The 45th amendment of the law on Equality and Citizenship, which planned this major advance in the fight against serious crime(cf. Communiqué de presse du 22 décembre), was the result of 8 years of sensibilization by the FLARE France network and then Crim’HALT but mostly of the political will of representatives such as Jean-René Marsac (Ille-et-Vilaine), that have initiated and advocated for this amendment during an examination of the law on Equality and Citizenship.
But with its great wisdom, on January 23, 2017, the Constitutional Council has refused the article 45, considered has a “rider”, like fifty other articles! (cf. décision).
Crim’HALT reminds that the social use of confiscated properties represents a cultural revolution in the fight against serious crime. Making confiscated ill-gotten goods available for associations if the only way of involving citizens in a sovereign prerogative: vidéos.
Crim’HALT laments that on January 27, 2017, the French President has enacted the low on Equality and Citizenship (Journal officiel n° 24 du 28 janvier 2017), passed by the National Assembly on December 22, 2016… but without its article 45, that would allow to provision entities of public interest with goods confiscated by the Justice.
