The National Agency for the Detection, Tracing and Management of Assets Derived from Corruption and Other Crimes ARMA
The National Agency for the Detection, Tracing and Management of Assets Derived from Corruption and Other Crimes (ARMA) is the special executive body that ensures detection and tracing of assets which can be seized in criminal proceedings, and/or management of assets which are seized or confiscated in criminal proceedings. Before 2016, there was no system of effective detection, tracing and management of criminal assets in Ukraine. As a result, criminal assets were not seized or were improperly maintained during the investigation, or sold at a lower price after the confiscation.
Establishment of the Agency is aimed at taking a burden off the law enforcement agencies and making the process of detection, tracing and managing criminal assets more transparent, effective and accountable.
