In an interview with The Chronicle, Acting Prosecutor General Mr Kumbirai Hodzi said the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) is setting up an Asset, Seizure and Forfeiture Unit which will confiscate all assets from people convicted of crime.
One of the exciting things which we are in the process of setting up is an Asset, Seizure and Forfeiture Unit. This unit will focus on the assets that are ill-gotten from the proceeds of crime. There will be plenty of seizure from persons who would have enriched themselves through crime and bought houses, cars, land, farms and other assets and also the seizure of their bank accounts where ever they are, even international bank accounts, that is the instrument that we will be increasingly using.
Without revealing names, Hodzi said there are quite a number of high profile corruption cases that will be brought before the courts soon.
