Written answers (Question to Justice)

As the Deputy will be aware, the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) is a multi-agency statutory body established under the Criminal Assets Bureau Act, 1996. The Bureau’s remit is to target the assets, wherever situated, of persons which derive or are suspected to derive, directly or indirectly, from criminal conduct. Officers from the Social Welfare, Revenue and Revenue Customs also seize assets that were unlawfully gained by persons under investigation by the CAB.

I am advised by CAB that the table appended to this answer represents the various assets that were seized by the CAB from its inception until 2020. Please be advised that the figures for 2020 are provisional pending the publication of the CAB Annual Report 2020.
