Evaluation Strategy for the restitution of illicit assets - Federal Department of Foreign Affairs

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) examined the practice of returning illicit assets. These are the assets of politically exposed persons (PEPs) that were frozen and then confiscated following legal proceedings. The Confederation is committed to returning the funds as quickly as possible and in a transparent manner. The projects financed with these funds must benefit the populations that were victims of corruption. Furthermore, the aim is to prevent funds of dubious origin from flowing into Switzerland.
