Abstract: 
On March 3, 2017, the Jersey government signed an agreement with the Kenyan government to return over £3 million of stolen assets to Kenya. In February 2016, Windward, a Jersey-registered company, pleaded guilty to four counts of laundering the proceeds of corruption in Jersey’s Royal Court, resulting in orders to seize funds held in the firm’s Jersey account.
