2021: Letter to Minister Helen McEntee on Repatriation of Assets

Transparency International Ireland (TI Ireland) wrote to Minister for Justice Helen McEntee TD to share the TI Ireland report Safe Haven? Targeting the Proceeds of Foreign Corruption in Ireland and to ask the Minister to draw on international anti-corruption standards with respect to the repatriation of assets frozen by the High Court as the proceeds of fraud and corruption in Uzbekistan. TI Ireland note that any agreement should ensure that the repatriation of these assets is open and transparent, subject to adequate independent civil society participation, benefits the Uzbek people in line with Ireland’s international commitments to SDG goal 16.4, and advocates for international independent oversight and due diligence in Uzbekistan’s management and disbursement of corrupt assets.
