Chapter Summary

For nearly a decade, the Philippines have discussed the introduction of a Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organisations (RICO) Act modelled after the US legislation with the same name. Since about 1998 there have been a series of bills before the Philippines' House of Parliament designed. These bills are largely identical, containing extensive provisions directed at the activities of criminal organisations, and powers to order the forfeiture and seizure of assets and regulate the restitution of property and compensation of victims of organised crime. This chapter examines the core offences included in the RICO bills. The offences include participation offence, and proceeds of crime and money laundering offences.
