We will also provide advice on how to properly remove a wanted vehicle and emphasize the importance of contacting qualified legal professionals in this matter.
Why can a vehicle be subject to an international search?
International vehicle tracing is a complex legal process that can arise for a variety of reasons. Here are some of the most common reasons a vehicle may be placed on an international wanted list:
- Theft or embezzlement. One of the most expected factors is the theft or illegal use of the vehicle. In this case, the owner of the vehicle can submit an application for its search through international law enforcement agencies.
- Violation of customs regulations. A vehicle may be searched if it was imported or exported from the country in violation of customs regulations or without appropriate documents.
- Involvement in a criminal investigation. If the vehicle has become the subject of a criminal investigation or is connected to a crime, it can be searched for further investigation.
- Improper use or possession. A vehicle may be wanted if its owner or user has committed acts that violate the law or international agreements.
- Violation of environmental standards: If a vehicle has caused serious environmental pollution or violated environmental standards, it may be wanted internationally.
- Lack of necessary documents: A vehicle that does not have the necessary documents, such as a transport license or a technical passport, may be searched for violating the rules of registration and legality of use.
- Arising of disputed ownership issues: In the event of a dispute regarding the ownership of a vehicle, its search can be launched to determine the rightful owner and resolve disputes.
What are the consequences of an international vehicle search?
An international vehicle search can have serious consequences for the owner or user of the vehicle:
- Prohibition of movement. A vehicle that is under international arrest may be prohibited from moving, which can significantly interfere with the owner’s work.
- Fines and court costs. The owner may be subject to fines and court costs associated with the search process and subsequent resolution of issues.
- Loss of reputation. An international search can lead to a loss of reputation and trust in the business and social environment.
- Closing the business. If the vehicle is a key asset in the business, then an international search may lead to its termination or significant restrictions on operations.
