The Agency for the Recovery of Criminal Goods will remain autonomous authority within the National Anticorruption Center.
Moreover, the powers of the institution will be extended. A draft law on this issue was voted by Parliament in final reading.
Although initial document declared the Agency to be subordinated to the State Tax Service, deputies gave up this idea for a more efficient functioning of the institution.
The agency will also be responsible for the return of criminal assets not only in corruption cases, but also in other cases, such as theft or embezzlement.
The document will enter into force after its publication in the Official Gazette.
