In an appeal from the district court's order striking claimant's claim to his assets in a civil forfeiture proceeding, the order is affirmed where: 1) 18 U.S.C. section 1956 authorized federal jurisdiction over forfeiture actions for proceeds of a violation of 18 U.S.C. section 1324, if that violation was for financial gain; and 2) 28 U.S.C. section 2466(a), the fugitive disentitlement statute, applied to claimants who were fugitives from state criminal proceedings.
