The confiscation of property that is derived from crime in various criminal procedures has always been used as an effective weapon, and, with the development of domestic and international criminal law policies, it has made varieties of ways to spend this kind of property. Procedures such as establishing special crime victim funds or re-social using from funds derived from the confiscation of property derived from crime have been seen in domestic and international instruments. The important point that should not be neglected in this process is the need to adapt these practices to human rights, which has been mentioned in both judicial and internal documents as well as in international instruments. The need to strike a balance between spending confiscation interests of crime-related property in ways that empower victims of crime, such as terrorist operations or the empowerment of societies that are mostly targeted at criminals in the domestic or transnational scope and respecting the rights of third parties with good faith and distinguishing between legal and illegal property must always be considered in the confiscation proceedings.
