Withdrawal of unfair advantage

In a separate judgment, the court may impose a deprivation order on a person convicted of an offence. A deprivation order is the obligation to pay a sum of money to the State in order to deprive it of the unlawfully obtained benefit. This therefore concerns the illegal income. The imposition of a deprivation order can have major consequences for a convicted person. Not only does he have an obligation to pay, but he also runs the risk of having to endure up to three years of coercion (deprivation of liberty) if he cannot pay or cannot pay in full.


Before the court takes a decision, a procedure is carried out that is separate from the criminal case (this is called the deprivation of liberty procedure). During this procedure, the person concerned is entitled to the assistance of a lawyer. More information can be found on our website
