Forfeiture (law)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Forfeiture is a measure provided for in the criminal law context to seize property

Several legal systems have provisions on forfeiture, such as

  • Verfall (German law)
  • Forfeiture (Austrian criminal law)[1].

In contrast, forfeiture is foreign to Swiss criminal law, cf. confiscation (StGB-CH)
