Letter to Minister of Justice Ireland

On 13 April 2021 Transparency International Ireland wrote to Minister for Justice Helen McEntee TD to ask the Minister to draw on international anti-corruption standards with respect to the repatriation of assets frozen by the High Court as the proceeds of fraud and corruption in Uzbekistan.

TI Ireland noted that any agreement should ensure that the repatriation of these assets is open and transparent, subject to adequate independent civil society participation, benefits the Uzbek people in line with Ireland’s international commitments to SDG goal 16.4, and advocates for international independent oversight and due diligence in Uzbekistan’s management and disbursement of corrupt assets.

To date there has been no response to this letter.
