or aircraft seized under the provisions of this Act files with the Attorney
General before the sale or destruction of such vessel or watercraft, vehicle, or
aircraft, a petition for the remission of such forfeiture the Attorney
General if he finds that such forfeiture was incurred without willful
negligence or without any intention on the part of the owner or any person
whose right, title or interest is of record as described in Section 36-1,
