In this week, the seizure of criminal assets in all its facets, from seizure to confiscation, was discussed by means of workshops, among other things. “Take away targets” per OM task accent have also been established.

Since 2015, the Integrale Afpakteam Kòrsou (IAK) has also been active in Curaçao. This team delivered a lot of results in the first years, but the results have decreased significantly in recent years. The main reason for this is the increasing lack of personnel capacity.

At the beginning of this year, the Afpakteam was dismantled to continue in a decentralized form at the various services working in law enforcement.
