Section 70. Preventive confiscation

Property may be confiscated when, due to the nature of the property and other circumstances, there is an obvious risk that it will be used in a criminal act. If the property is suited for use in physical assault, it is sufficient that there is a risk of such use. Confiscation of an information carrier, see section 76, may only be effected when there is a risk of irreparable harm.
Instead of confiscating the object, measures may be imposed to prevent the use of the property in offences.
Section 69, second paragraph, applies correspondingly.
Confiscation pursuant to the first paragraph may be effected regardless of who is the owner.
