Minister presents proceeds of crime bill to Parliment

 

The Minister of Defence,Justice and Security Hon. Dikgakgamatso Ndelu Seretse ,this week presented a bill that seeks to deprive persons convicted of certain crimes of benefits or rewards gained from such crimes.

He said the length of time it takes to secure a conviction provides an opportunity for proceeds of crime to dissipate.
