Section 68. Extended confiscation

Extended confiscation may be effected when the offender is found guilty of a criminal act of such a nature that the proceeds thereof may be considerable, and the offender has committed
  1. a.
    one or more criminal acts that collectively are punishable by imprisonment for a term of six years or more,
  2. b.
    at least one criminal act which is punishable by imprisonment for a term of two years or more, and the offender during the five years immediately preceding the commission of the act has had a penalty imposed for an act of such a nature that the proceeds thereof may be considerable, or
  3. c.
    an attempt at an act specified in a) or b).

There shall be no increase of the penalty pursuant to section 79 b) and c).

In the event of extended confiscation all assets belonging to the offender may be confiscated unless the offender proves on a balance of probabilities that the said assets have been lawfully acquired. Section 67, first paragraph, second sentence, and fourth paragraph, apply correspondingly.
In the event of extended confiscation from the offender the value of all assets belonging to the offender's present or previous spouse may also be confiscated unless
  1. a.
    they were acquired before the marriage was entered into or after the marriage was dissolved,
  2. b.
    they were acquired at least five years before the criminal act that provides a basis for extended confiscation, or
  3. c.
    the offender proves on a balance of probabilities that the assets were acquired by means other than criminal acts the offender has committed personally.

When two persons are living together permanently in a marriage-like relationship, this is deemed equivalent to marriage.
