'Transnational organised crimes'
He also spoke to chief justices from Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zanzibar, Zambia and Zimbabwe about cybercrime.
According to Chief Justice of Namibia, the Hon, Peter S.

International asset recovery is any effort by governments to repatriate the proceeds of corruption hidden in foreign jurisdictions. Such assets may include monies in bank accounts, real estate, vehicles, arts and artifacts, and precious metals. As defined under the United Nations Convention against Corruption, asset recovery refers to recovering the proceeds of corruption, rather than broader terms such as asset confiscation or asset forfeiture which refer to recovering the proceeds or instrumentalities of crime in general.
