Part Three - Targeting offenders - confiscating property

39. This part of the Act contains powers for police constables and courts to detain or order forfeiture of a vehicle, ship or aircraft when there has been an arrest or conviction of human trafficking (section 13 and 14). It also classifies offences of human trafficking and slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour as "lifestyle offences", under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (section 15). This allows further action to be taken against perpetrators to target their assets.
