Abstract: In this study I would like to address a legal instrument used in the fight against economic crime. The stake for committing economic offences is the financial gain. An efficient penal policy against economic crime must aim at tracing, seizing and confiscating property derived from criminal activities. At the European level there is a constant concern for the elaboration and functioning of an efficient instrument, able to ensure the suppression of illegal gain. Legally speaking, there are several possibilities to achieve that goal: civil, administrative or criminal proceedings. My approach centers upon the presentation of the manner in which confiscation does actually work in criminal matters in Romania.

Keywords: confiscation; proceeds of crime; economic crime; Romania.
