The competent authority (CA), located in the Ministry of Finance (MOF), administers both the NDPSA and the SAFEMA.
2001 Amendments to the NDPSA allow the CA to seize any asset owned or used by a narcotics trafficker immediately upon arrest.
The amended NDPSA also made it more likely that drug traffickers would be refused bail, particularly those serious offenders who are more likely to flee before trial.
