          Abstract

          Abstract The purpose of this article is to understand how asset freezing works in the United States of America and in Mexico, as well as the contrasts and similarities in both systems. The threats posed to civil rights that can arise from asset freezing led us to compare the judicial criteria held by the US Courts and the corresponding reasoning in the Mexican legal system. Alternative rulings from European courts are also considered. Finally, some recommendations are made to improve due process in the Mexican legal system after preventing money laundering and funding terrorism when freezing financial assets.

          Resumen El propósito de este artículo es entender cómo funciona la congelación de activos en los Estados Unidos de América y México, sus contrastes y similitudes en ambos sistemas. Las amenazas a los derechos civiles que pueden surgir de la congelación de activos nos llevaron a comparar criterios judiciales sostenidos por los Tribunales de los Estados Unidos y el correspondiente razonamiento en el sistema legal mexicano. También se consideran las decisiones alternativas de los tribunales europeos. Finalmente, se hacen algunas recomendaciones para mejorar el debido proceso en los casos de prevención del lavado de dinero y financiamiento al terrorismo en el sistema legal mexicano al congelar activos financieros.
