The Decree for Justifiable Confiscation gives the Ministry the power to confiscate the contents of a will to stop wizards passing on Dark artifacts. The Ministry is required to have evidence that the deceased’s possessions are illegal before seizing them. They can only hold the items for 31 days. The Ministry used this law as an excuse to examine the items Dumbledore willed to Harry, Ron, and Hermione (DH7).
