Crime should not pay even though there are plenty of people who consider breaking the law as the fastest way to get their hands on some real cash. This week defendants with convictions for human smuggling to their name heard the prosecution demand that they have to return the profits of their crimes – whereby at least eight people drowned – to the state.

In a different case, a man caught with $50,000 in 50 and 100 dollar bills at the airport saw his criminal capital evaporate because the court seized it.

This way the judicial system sent a strong signal to law breakers: it could take some time, but in the end there is a price to be paid for criminal behavior. That’s the way it should be.
