Strengthening EU asset recovery and sanction tracing against transnational high-level corruption
KLEPTOTRACE will boost the investigation, tracing and recovery of the assets related to transnational high-level corruption and to sanctioned regimes and entities through a combination of (i) research, (ii) training and (iii) data-driven tools. The KLEPTOTRACE toolbox will build on and improve existing tools – including the DATACROS and EBOCS tools – by connecting new asset registers and data beyond firms (e.g. real estate, vessels, asset declarations, sanction lists), and by embedding innovative AI-based risk assessment functions.
The KLEPTOTRACE consortium covers 8 EU countries – 30 European countries indirectly – and involves research centers, LEAs, anti-corruption agencies, FIUs, civil society, journalists and business registers.
